A spokesman for a Syrian Islamist group says his fighters are not at war with Israel, and they don't intend to use the conflict to oust President Bashar Assad as a launching pad to attack Israelis.
"We are only here to fight Assad," said Laeth Horan, the spokesman for the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade, the group that kidnapped U.N. peacekeepers in March and May, in The Times of Israel. "We want nothing from Israel and we want Israel to know this."
"There is nothing between us and Israel," he said in The Times of Israel. "We only have demands of Assad, even after the war. The Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade has no international aspirations. We are only in conflict with the Assad regime."
