Nusra Officially Declares War Against ISIS

The emir of the Nusra Front in the Levant, Abu Muhammad Golani has issued a recorded statement officially declaring war against the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS).


Golani said ISIS had committed many mistakes towards Jihadist fighting groups in Syria, including the Nusra Front and called on all the fighting groups to form a committee to join the battle.


The Nusra Front is considered more moderate than the ISIS but is still affiliated with Al-Qaeda. Golani had said in a previous statement that Nusra has no ambitions for power after the fall of Syrian regime.
