The leader of Jabhat Al Nusra’s, now Jabhat Fath Al-Sham, Barraq Battalions defected from the Al-Qaeda affiliated terror group and joined the notorious ISIS group.

ISIS may now look to attack the government positions near the city center of Damascus or the rebel positions of Jaish Al-Islam in the nearby Yalda.

The emperor has no clothes…
