BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:15 P.M.) – An Al-Qaeda branch in Syria has recently merged their group with another jihadist faction to form a new terrorist legion in the northern part of country.

According to a statement from Tanzim Hurras Al-Deen, their organization has merged with another jihadist group, Ansar Al-Tawhid (formerly Jund Al-Aqsa), to form a new legion called “Nusret Islam.”

Tanzim Hurras Al-Deen is led by Abu Hammam Al-Shami, who was also a former member of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

Shami would leave Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham with many of its members to form this Al-Qaeda linked group in northern Syria.

The chameleon name game again. A rat stays a rat no matter it calls itself a cat.

From Nusra to Nusret. Not that they strive to conceal…
Anyway, this shows a turn toward even more hardline positions than they actually were. Many militants were not happy when al Nusra differentiated itself from al Qaeda. Looks like their faction is gaining momentum within the ranks.

Aren’t these the same group Turkey pays $300 per month since ISIS was nearly defeated before Erdogan’s BS Operation Olive Branch rushed to Daeshs rescue and expanded the genocide against the Kurds beyond Turkey’s borders? Please boot Turkey from NATO and exclude them from any consideration re; their attempts to join the EU. Erdogan’s true colors seems much worse than those of Assad, perhaps it’s time for the USA and the West to revisit the list of rogue nations and the tyrant dictators that guides their actions and the way the free world responds to treachery and crimes against humanity… Read more »

Many of the dumb fighters are just dying for nothing but a pidly sum of some $300 per month. Their handlers and commanders probably make more money they get from their financiers by sending these poor foot soldiers with just assault rifle guns to fight & die. Whether they fight as one group or merge with other just to increase their rank & file numbers it doesn’t matter. They will still become cannon fodder.
