Not yet designated as terrorist by a Western country

Base of operations: Syria

Background: Aymenn al-Tamimi

Jamaat Jund al-Sham ("Group of Soldiers of ash-Sham") was a jihadi group founded by Lebanese Sunni foreign fighters in western Homs countryside, but it also attracted foreign fighters of other nationalities (e.g., Jordanians) and had a native Syrian contingent. Primarily based in Krak des Chevaliers (the historic Crusader castle), the group was eventually driven out by Assad regime forces in March 2014 and has since become virtually defunct. Ideologically, the group espoused the establishment of a caliphate.
