“Dzhebhat an-Nusra” was separated from “al-Qaeda” and was renamed

The extremist group “Dzhebhat EN-Nusra” (banned in Russia) declared about secession from another, not the group “al-Qaeda”. This was announced by leader Abu Muhammad al-Dzhulani. He also said that the group disclaims all operations under the previous name and will now be called “jabhat al Fatah ash-sham” (i.e. “front for the conquest of Syria – ed.), reports TASS.

Experts believe that this was done because of pressure from Russia and the USA and with the purpose to draw closer to other Islamist groups fighting in Syria.
