Katibat al-Tawhid wa al-Jihad

Not yet designated terrorist by a Western country
Base of operations: Syria
Background: Long War Journal

Katibat al-Tawhid wa al-Jihad (Jihad & Tawhid Battalion) is a primarily Uzbek jihadi battalion operating in the northwest of Syria, having worked closely with al-Qaeda's official Syrian wing Jabhat al-Nusra, as well as other jihadi groups like the Turkestan Islamic Party and Junud al-Sham in the 2015 Idlib province offensives. The affinities with al-Qaeda were always clear, and the group eventually pledged allegiance to Jabhat al-Nusra following on from Jaysh al-Muhajireen wa al-Ansar's pledge of allegiance to Jabhat al-Nusra.
