Jund al-Aqsa terrorist group is going increasingly fragile as its militants are joining the ISIL and Al-Nusra Front terrorist groups after widening rifts among them, media reports said.
A large number of Jund al-Aqsa militants have joined the ISIL and Al-Nusra Front terrorist groups, the Arabic-language al-Safir newspaper reported on Sunday.
The newspaper wrote that the Al-Nusra Front has exerted a lot of pressure on Jund al-Aqsa in recent days to force it to merge into Al-Nusra Front.
In order to achieve its goals, the Al-Nusra Front has waged large-scale psychological warfare against Jund al-Aqsa by accusing it of having secret ties with the ISIL.
Al-Nusra Front is the official branch of the Al-Qaeda terrorist group in Syria.
In a relevant development last month, Jeish al-Fatah (Army of Conquest), Syria’s largest coalition of terrorist groups, is going increasingly fragile as militant groups have started assassination and abduction of each others’ leaders.
Jeish al-Fatah is an umbrella coalition of militant groups which are supported by different foreign countries and for the same reason they are at odds with each other.
The terrorists of Al-Nusra Front and Al-Sham Battalions resumed their clashes early January after a bomb blast aimed to kill senior commander of Al-Sham Battalions Ahmad al-Omar.
Al-Omar escaped the assassination attempt, but several other notorious terrorists of Al-Sham Battalions, including Abdu Fatin al-Jazar, were killed when the bomb exploded on a rural road between Ablin and Abdina villages.
