ALEPPO, Syria — Talk about Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) leader Abu Mohammed al-Golani has once again surfaced following his interview with American journalist Martin Smith that was published on PBS Frontline on June 1.

The documentary sheds light on a part of Golani’s character that many in the Syrian opposition had known nothing about since he founded Jabhat al-Nusra in 2012.
