Jaysh Halab (Arabic: جيش حلب‎, lit. 'Army of Aleppo'‎) is a coalition of Syrian rebel groups based in rebel-held areas inside the city of Aleppo, Syria. The coalition was created by an Ahrar ash-Sham commander with the intent of unifying various rebel groups in Aleppo.[1]

Member groups

The joint operations room consists of both Sunni Islamist factions and Free Syrian Army groups. On its formation in 6 February 2016, the Ahrar ash-Sham commander issued an ultimatum that ordered 15 rebel factions to join the group within 72 hours.[1]
