Jamaat al-Itisam bil-Kitab wa al-Sunna

Not yet designated terrorist by a Western country
Base of operations: Sudan

Jamaat al-Itisam bil-Kitab wa al-Sunna ('The group of holding fast to the Book and the Sunna') is a group founded by one Suleiman Abu Naro, who led the group until his death on 2 December 2014. Describing itself as 'a Salafi group working to establish God's religion in the land' and engaging in da'wah efforts for the revival of the Caliphate, the group primarily appears to act as a support organization for the Islamic State, having released a statement in November 2014 denouncing the "Crusader-Arab-Persian' campaign against the Islamic State and calling on God to render the Islamic State a 'rightly guided Caliphate reviving the program of the Prophets/prophethood.' However, no formal allegiance statement has been released with subsequent acknowledgement by the Islamic State and dissolution to form a new 'province' of the Islamic State, contrasting with the transformation of Ansar Bait al-Maqdis into 'Sinai Province'.
