Journalist Tam Hussein has been in direct contact with Ali Al Manasfi and has spoken to him several times. Ali did confirm that he is still in Syria but did not want to share his exact location for security reasons.
Ali considers himself a freedom fighter, not a terrorist and believes it is his religious and moral duty as a Syrian and a Muslim to help the rebels rid Syria of the Assad regime. Ali said he wants to be "left to get on with what he's doing and be left alone by the media".
