Al-Qaeda’s main branch in Syria, the Islamic State of Iraq and the
Levant (ISIL), has raided a wedding party in the suburb of Aleppo and
ordered stopping music and singing, the Asharq al-Awsat reported,
quoting Syrian activists.
“One leader of the Islamic State warned residents that if a music
band is invited to a wedding again, the person responsible will be
arrested because this is immoral,” the newspaper reported, citing an
internet page of the Syrian Revolution in Menbej.
The al-Qaeda leader reportedly asked the man in charge of the wedding
to memorize a verse of the Quran and attend several religious courses
at al-Qaeda’s center in Maskana, near Aleppo.
