Video: Saudi Faction Swears Allegiance To Jaish al-Muhajireen wal-Ansar Emir

Katibat al-Khadra, a predominantly Saudi faction, has sworn allegiance to Jaish al-Muhajireen wal-Ansar Emir Salahuddin Shishani, formally becoming part of the jamaat.

JMA published a video of the oath-taking:

Some points:

1. Katibat al-Khadra are one of the four groups that formed the alliance Jabhat Ansar a-Din.

2. JMA have said that Jabhat Ansar a-Din is just a union and does not have a single leadership i.e. Emir. Katibat al-Khadra are now under the leadership of Salahuddin Shishani, meaning that there are now only 3 groups in the Jabhat Ansar a-Din union.

Aymenn J. Al-Tamimi has this information about Katibat al-Khadra:

As a side-note, it’s worth pointing out that recently JMA accounts have stopped referring to the group as the Caucasus Emirate in Syria. It is not known whether this is deliberate or not, but it is definitely noticeable.
