“Coordinate with those responsible for the demonstrations and tell them that we are with you, your brothers, and what you need, we are with you to protect you, the speak is free so why not saying a word of good, and they will say we do not need anything so tell them we will demonstrate with you, and we are Muslims and demand the overthrow of the regime, also there is a very important issue should not appear in the western media, that the people are making us their enemy, and that the people have dropped our banner and they run over it, so be careful, if a banner was risen; there will be someone who will pull it down and run over it, and it will appear on the western media that they have run over the banner of Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham, this is a big issue, this means that the battle will be against Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham in the future, and the people ready to declare the battle in demonstrations, so if the people pulled our banner in front of the media; this means that the battle has been prepared against us, let them raise the banner of the revolution, and we will show them on the fronts of clashes who fight and stay patience to support the religion of Allah, and sacrifice their blood for the blood of Muslims and keeping their honor, and the majority say that the axis in battle is Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham, and if Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham is gone, then the Syrian north is gone, you have there people with their own purposes, and many people say this as well but they forget if they get angry, but we must reduce the sedition and be a bulwark between the general Muslims -and most of them are ignorant- and between the seditions, and the officials in Idlib and its countryside have to alert for not raising flags of Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham, and to reassure the demonstrators that no flags of Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham will be risen, and that any member of Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham or their supporters will go out to overthrow the regime, and any person who raises the flag -of Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham- will be arrested and investigated about his identity and goals of raising the flag of Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham, and you must coordinate and cooperate with each other and with supervisors of the demonstrations, because we do not want to have things that may separate us then have these things thrown at Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham, because it is intended to provoke sedition because of us.”
