Chechen commander leads Emigrants Brigade in Syria

Publication time: 21 February 2013, 00:59

A commander from the Caucasus known as Abu Omar al Chechen is a key leader in the Muhajirun, or Emigrants, Brigade, a group that fights alongside the Al Nusrah Front for the People of the Levant against the regime of Assad. The Muhajirun Brigade, whose members include fighters from the Islamic Caucasus Emirate, has played a vital role in overrunning several major Syrian military installations over the past year.

Abu Omar is an Emir of Mujahideen Brigade of Muhajirun, which also includes volunteers from the Caucasus Emirate. Kavkaz Center posted a video of an appeal by Abu Omar on its English-language website on Feb. 7.

In the video, Abu Omar, sporting a red beard and what appears to be a North Face cap, is seen seated among 19 heavily armed Jihad fighter, many of whom are masked. Two of the Mujahideen are seen holding the flag of the Islamic State of Iraq.

The Muhajirun Brigade is one of the most active units of Mujahideen fighting in Syria against the Alawite regime of Assad and Iranian mercenaries rafidites [those who reject Islam]."

"Chechen fighters", often described as fighters from the Caucasus, have been engaged on the Syrian battlefield for months. In October, a group of "Chechen emigrants" fought, along with a soldier from the Free Syrian Army unit, under the command of the Al Nusrah Front to take control of a key Syrian air defense and Scud missile base in Aleppo.

The Muhajirun Group is known to have participated in two other major assaults against Syrian Alawite military bases since the October operation in Aleppo.

In mid-December, the Muhajirun Group teamed up with the Al Nusrah Front to overrun the Sheikh Suleiman base, or Base 111. Arab and Central Asian fighters participated in the battle.

And last week, the Al Nusrah Front, together with the Tawhid Brigade and the Muhajirun Group, stormed the base of the Syrian military's 80th Regiment (or Brigade), which is situated near the main airport in Aleppo in eastern Syria.

Dokku Abu Usman, the Emir of the Islamic Caucasus Emirate, has praised the Mujahideen in Syria as well as the fighters from the Caucasus. In November, the Emir released a speech on the Kavkaz Center website that addressed the Jihad in Syria.

"I appeal to the brothers, and I want to stress that we, the Mujahideen of the Caucasus, pray for you, make Dua [supplication to Allah], ask Allah to help you with His angels, that Allah helps you in every way", he said.

In the speech, Umarov warned the Syrian Mujahideen not to replace the regime of Bashar al-Assad, using Turkish, or Saudi, or Egyptian, or American, or English money, with another idol under the guise of democracy.

The Caucasian Emir was highly awarded to the Obama Administration with prestigious nomination as Specially Designated Global Terrorist in June 2010. The US also awarded the Islamic Caucasus Emirate by placing it into the internationally respected List of Foreign Terrorist Organizations in May 2011.
