Et titall ulike kampgrupper i Syria tilhørende Den frie syriske hær, FSA, har sverget troskap til IS og kalifatet.

Det er grupper hørende hjemme i Qalamoun-fjellene ved grensen mellom Libanon og Syria.

Nusra-fronten har den senere tid samarbeidet med IS. Hva dette betyr for Libanon, kan man bare spekulere i, men det er neppe gode utsikter.

The Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front (Jabhat Al-Nusra) – who fought ISIS in Deir Ezzor – has seemingly repaired relations in eastern Lebanon and western Syria. The 2 militant groups have been spotted working together during armed engagements with loyalist forces in ‘Assal Al-Ward and Rankous.

 

The FSA groups who pledged allegiance to ISIS are the following:

1. Liwaa Al-Farouq – Approximately 300 fighters

2. Liwaa Al-Qusayr – Approximately 600 fighters

3. Liwaa Al-Turkomen – Approximately 400 fighters

4. Liwaa Al-Haqq – Approximately 400 fighters

5. Kataeb Al-Mouqna – Approximately 200 fighters

6. Liwaa Matfareeq – Approximately 500 fighters

7. Suqour Al-Fatih – Approximately 200 fighters

8. Liwaa 77 – Approximately 400 fighters
