People in Idlib protested on September 12 against Tahrir al-Sham, formerly the al-Qaeda affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra, demanding they commute a death sentence given to a young man in the town, according to local activist reports. The 18-year-old, Suliman al-Zaidan from Kafroma in southern Idlib province, was accused of “insulting the Prophet Mohammad,” according to this video shared by anti-government media. Protesters can be heard chanting, the “people demand commutation of the sentence”. A woman seen crying in the video says that her six sons were killed during the war and her son Suliman would be the seventh. She says that her son was accused of blasphemy and that she was not aloud to see him. She appeals to “Jabhat al-Nusra” to commute the death. Credit: YouTube/SMART News Agency via Storyful
