Free Halab is a weblog offering the latest news, reports, perspectives and analysis concerning the Syrian revolution. Focusing on the reality of the events that are taking place on the ground more than on the international politics dealing with them, special attention is given to what is taking place in Aleppo, as well as the role of Syria’s traditional Sunni scholarly community and the religious and ethnic challenges faced by the country at large. Last but not least, it seeks to expose the facade of an alliance of families claiming to govern and represent a nation, while relying on pillars of tyranny, oppression, destruction, brutality, mass murder, cultism, sectarianism, corruption, deception and conspiracy in order to survive.

      I have been collating damage to the cultural heritage of Syria to raise the profile of the damage occuring, and I wondered if you would mind sharing them with me also?

    Assalaamu alaykum,

    thank you very much for this informative blog; may Allah reward you abundantly. I have not been able to find an article about the Liwa al-Ummah brigade. It would be very interesting to read your comments on it. Jazakum Allahu khayran.

    Thank you for the support. I never looked much into them but it’s a very interesting group due to its foreign component while its character is not at all what the stereotype suggests. I believe they became officially part of the FSA a few months ago. There are various articles available about them, I’ll try to compose a post at some point insha’Allah.

    Dear Free Halab,
    Many thanks for your extremely helpful website. One question though: your website background with Haleb’s aerial view is very heavy to load for browsers, perhaps it could be changed?

    As-salâmu ‘aleykum,

    I hope you’re safe and your family as well.
    Since months I used to follow your post and finds them highly beneficial to higtlight many issues.
    May Allah gives us the opportunity of benefiting from your efforts and accepts your efforts and open the hearts and the hands of the ummah and units us in this struggle.
    I’m looking for some informations about a shaykh and I don’t know why but the 1st people I think about to gain informations about him is you, so have you heard about the shaykh, the martyr Adlib Al-Kaylani ? From what I’ve heard he was killed in the 80’s. Do you have more informations on him maybe a short biography ?

    May Allah unites the ummah of his prophet s.a.w, and helps our muslim brothers in Syria and in every places, grants them victory over the oppressors and saves their lifes and their honor and grants the martyrs the highest rank in Jannah. Amin

    Dear Free Halab,

    I run a website intending to show perspectives that are often ignored in the mainstream media, http://the-re-view.org and would love to re-publish some of your articles (including links back to your website.) Would you be interested in this? If you have any questions please feel free to email me.

    Kind Regards,
