It has been a rough week for the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, as the Qatari-backed terror network has experienced a number of high level assassinations at the hands of their former allies from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

On Tuesday morning, two senior Jabhat Al-Nusra security officials were unexpectedly picked off by ISIS snipers that were entrenched inside the Dara’a Governorate: the Jabhat Al-Nusra officials were identified as Leith Waheed Bajibouj and ‘Abdel-‘Aziz Al-Falluji – they were both killed by ISIS snipers at different times of the day.

Another Jabhat Al-Nusra security official was killed on Monday morning; however, this time, the security official was not killed by ISIS and he was not killed in the Dara’a Governorate.

The Saudi national “Abu ‘Anas Al-Sa’oudi” (identification pending) was reportedly killed by an Anti-ISIS Coalition airstrike near the formerly Christian town of Kinsibba in the Latakia Governorate – he was identified by his comrades as one of the casualties of the airstrike.

In addition to the loss of three security officials, the Al-Qaeda terrorist network also received news that 38 fighters from their affiliate organization “Jund Al-Aqsa” have pledged allegiance to the self-proclaimed Caliph, Sheikh Ibrahim Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, inside the Al-Raqqa Governorate on Wednesday.

Jabhat Al-Nusra and Jund Al-Aqsa were two of the largest factions (save Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham) in the conglomerate of Islamist rebel groups known as “Jaysh Al-Fateh” (Army of Conquest).
