Jaysh al-Nasr (Arabic: جيش النصر‎‎) or the Army of Victory is a Free Syrian Army-allied, armed rebel faction participating in the Syrian Civil War. Founded in August 2015 as a joint operations room of 16 member groups,[1] three of the groups later fully merged into Jaysh al-Nasr.

History

Formation as a joint operations room

Jaysh al-Nasr was formed in early August 2015 as a joint operations room with the stated objective being the "liberation of the northern countryside of Hama, breaking the regime's first defense line toward Hama the city." It was announced as a first step towards unifying the Free Syrian Army in Idlib and Hama provinces into a single operations room. The alliance initially comprised the following 16 groups:[1][8]

Reformation as a unified group

In late October 2015, it was announced that three of its component groups, the Regiment 111, the Falcons of al-Ghab and the al-Inqaz Front (Jabhat al-Inqadh al-Muqatila) completely merged into Jaysh al-Nasr with Suqour al-Ghab's leader Mohamed Mansour assuming the leadership of the new unified group.[2]
