The Battle of Victory (Arabic: معركة النصر‎, Maarakat an-Nasr), also known as "Tahrir Sahl al-Ghab" was an operations room created by Syrian rebel factions in April 2015, with the goal of capturing the city of Jisr al-Shughur and the surrounding areas in northwestern Syria, from the control of Syrian government forces.[1] The operations room was modelled on the Army of Conquest, which captured Idlib city, and features many of the same groups.[1]
