Who is the man speaking in the last witness video?

Abu Hamam al-Suri/Farouq al-Suri – travelled to Afghanistan in the late 90s and joined the Ghuarab Camp under Abu Musab al-Suri for a year. He then moved to Farouq Camp and then the Airport Camp for Special Forces in Qandahar. Sayf al-Adel appointed him as leader of the airport area in Qandahar and he worked as a trainer in the camp. He pledged Bay’ah to Bin Laden personally (by hand) and was appointed to be incharge of Syrians in Afghanistan by Abu Hafs al-Komandan. After invasion of Afghanistan he withdrew with Sayf al-Adel, then Mustafa Abul-Yazid appointed him to work in Iraq before fall of Baghdad. He stayed in Baghdad for 4 months as ordered by AQC and there he met Abu Hamza al-Muhajir and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. He was arrested by Iraqi intelligence and handed over to Syria who eventually released him. After beginning of Jihad in Iraq he was appointed Military Leader of “Office of Mujahideen Serivces” (in Syria). Abu Musab al-Zarqawi used to send him people and Abu Hamam used to train them and send them back to him. In 2005 Syrian governments started mass arrests so he left for Lebanon and then travelled back to Afghanistan on orders by AQC. Attiyallah al-Libbi appointed him to work in Syria under AQC directly (so not Iraq). He was arrested in Lebanon and was imprisoned for 5 years. After he was released he joined al-Qaeda in Syria (Jabhat Al-Nusra). He works now as the Military Leader of Jabhat Al-Nusrah
