The group delivers its message to Idlib's residents via many platforms, particularly the mosques.Most Idlib residents believe HTS considers those joining its ranks are absolved of any previous sins, even if the new recruit is a shabih or member of the Assad regime's security forces, and can pay a bribe and go free.The residents of Idlib live in fear of HTS. When Abu Abdullah tried to take members of the group to court for seizing aid intended for the displaced in his village, the court's response was that HTS fighters are mujahedeen and therefore have a right to things others do not.Some residents claim that HTS fighters are only deployed on front lines with the Free Syrian Army and Ahrar al-Sham, but are not actually fighting.Many Syrians feel they are living under occupation. They reacted positively when they heard of Turkey's intervention in Idlib, counting down the hours and minutes. Idlib residents' life under Islamist factions like HTS differs little from life under the oppressive Syrian regime.
