The Kurdish Islamic Front was a small armed Islamist insurgent group founded by Sunni Arab Islamists of Ahrar ash-Sham. It fought during the Syrian Civil War and was opposed to secular Syrian Kurdish groups, including those who want an independent Kurdish state. Its spokesperson was Salaheddin al-Kurdi. It merged into the Ahrar ash-Sham group in December 2014.
