The Nusra Front, which operates as Al-Qaeda's official wing in Syria under the command of Abu Muhammad al-Golani, has been fighting against Bashar al-Assad's regime in the three-year civil war, often alongside other local brigades.

They have also been engaged in fighting with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a breakaway group which was disowned by Al-Qaeda under the command of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Both groups have been active along the Syrian border with Turkey, causing great concern.
