Well that would certainly be a surprising twist...
Surprising yes, but it wouldn't change anything anyway. Both FSA and ISIS/Walid ibn Khalid group will cease to exist in Daraa in a few months.
So they rejected both government and ISIS?
This title is unnecessarily ambiguous. Is the "of" meant to be there?
They reject reconciliation and a pledge of allegiance to ISIS? Because when phrased like that it means they reject reconciliation (with the government? or with ISIS?) and they reject a pledge of allegiance with ISIS.
It seems highly unlikely that Muatazbillah would pledge allegiance to ISIS.
Where did you hear Jaysh al-Muataz Billah mentioned? Or are they just the main group in Tafas?
I doubt it's true, but I know that there's an Independent Muataz Billah Brigade that split from the main group in February 2016 and become an independent Islamist group (non-FSA, non-Southern Front), so I suppose if it's true it's probably that group that's being referenced, not the more well-known Jaysh al-Muataz Billah.
They are the dominant group in Tafas (led by Col. Khalid Nablusi) in that the local factions are affiliated with them. Excerpt from recent notes on the local factions:
Liwa Abbad al-Rahman (JMB) led by Abu Murshed al-Baradan - joined in 2017-2016, first formed in june 2012.
Fajr Islam Division (FID) Lt. Colonel Muhammad Salameh Abu Hassan, includes a number of groups in w daraa.. Most visible member in Tafas is one known as Khaldoun al-Zoubi.
First Tafas Martyrs Division (FTM), formed 2014 Col. Farouq Shahada al-Hourani, multiple units in the west but less important and not as influential as other two groups.
Elements of Southern Storm Division (part of al-Haqq Brigade) previous leader Nadal Bardan Abu Hassan was leader of al-Haqq but killed in JKW fighting 3 months ago.
Previously there was a presence for Division al-Habib Muhammad that was part of al-Muthanna, negative reputation, led by Amid Abu Nuqta and his cousin Alaa Abu Nuqta (Alaa al-Akfat) but around March 2016 the military council dissolved the group and pursued leadership, capturing Amid Abu Nuqta and turned him over to Dar al-Adl, Alaa fled to join JKW. A month later DA released Amid, roughly 4 months ago he was assassinated by unknown elements.
Except that the support they enjoyed from the West is mostly gone and they probably feel betrayed/abandoned, so maybe they are going to extreme measures.
Dude, stop trying to discredit someone just because they have posted in a specific subreddit. The comment you replied to does not stand out as particularly extreme/bigoted/whatever you have come to associate with that sub, so your reply breaks rules 1 and 6. Consider this a warning /u/cmarrs85.

I post a brief opinion and it bothers you so much you check over my account history to throw in a little ad hominem jab? You must have a lot of free time on your hands.
