They killed 15 members of the FSA. We were in big clashes with them and were able to kill 20 of them and arrest another 50. Then we held a field trial for them. We have judges and lawyers who are in the opposition. They found that seven of the Berri clan were involved in killing and they decided to execute them. Others are kept for trial after the collapse of the regime
