Revolutionaries of the “liberated” territories of Aleppo: general strike to protest against the kidnappings of medical doctors by Jabhat Al Nusra

Groups of civilian activists in the “liberated” territories of Aleppo published a statement, signed on behalf of “revolutionaries of the liberated city of Aleppo”, in which they announced a strike to protest the kidnapping of some medical doctors by members of Jabhat Al Nusra.

The statement addressed the bodies of medical and civic councils operating in Aleppo, inviting them to “assume their humanitarian responsibilities, and to maintain the security of the medical staff.”

According to the statement, the medical doctors in Aleppo oppose the kidnapping, by the counter revolutionary force and reactionary force of Jabhat Al Nusra, and called for a “general  and global strike in all the hospitals and medical centers in the liberated territories of  Aleppo.”

The Revolutionary Left Movement declares its support for this strike and all forms of popular struggles against both the reactionary forces and the authoritarian Assad regime, and called for renewal of the popular movement wherever this is possible.

  1. Who are these groups calling for the strike? Why is liberated in quotes? I have seen zero reports about kidnapping by Al Nura. ISIS was reported fighting the FSA and hospitals were treating wounded from both then hospitals stopped treating ISIS wounded and ISIS threatened the staff according to a CNN report. Nomention of Al Nusra at all. Please document your sources. What are the names of the kidnapped and when and where were they kidnapped from. Asa I said , zero reports other than your own.
