First picture emerges of Al Nusra terror leader – one of the world’s most wanted – as the group announces official split from al-Qaeda

‘We declare the complete cancellation of all operations under the name of Jabhat al-Nusra, and the formation of a new group operating under the name “Jabhat Fath al-Sham” noting that this new organisation has no affiliation to any external entity,’ said Jolani, in a video aired on the Syrian opposition station Orient TV and Al-Jazeera.

The group will also now be known by the name Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, meaning the Conquest of Syria.

It sounds like the launch of a new real estate agency – and in a way, it is.
