The Muhajirin wa-Ansar Alliance (Arabic: تحالف المهاجرين والأنصار‎, Alliance of Emigrants and Helpers) is an alliance of Salafi jihadist groups that have been active during the Syrian Civil War.[1] [needs update?] The groups involved are: Jund al-Aqsa (former), Liwaa al-Umma, the Omar Brigade and the Haqq Brigade in Idlib.[1] Two prominent members of the alliance, Jund al-Aqsa and Haqq Brigade in Idlib, became part of the Army of Conquest operations room in 2015, entering into a strategic relationship with al-Nusra Front. Jund al-Aqsa later left the Army of Conquest.
