Mr. Abdul-Rahman, who supports the rebels, said he opposes such actions by either side.
“We are dreaming of a new Syria and a new democratic country,” he said, “We don’t want a system where if someone kills me, I can kill him.”
Syria‘s crisis began in March 2011 with protests calling for political reform that the government quickly repressed. It has since evolved into a civil war with scores of largely independent rebel groups fighting the government across the country.
The United Nations said this month that more than 60,000 people had been killed since the conflict’s start.
