The Nusra Front has declared all-out war against an American-backed Syrian rebel group in the north of the country, accusing it of kidnapping and killing several of its fighters.In January, clashes again erupted between the Nusra Front and Hazm in both Idlib and Aleppo, and were punctuated by the Nusra Front's reported killing of a Saudi national – dispatched by the Ahrar al-Sham Islamist militia as a mediator.When the Nusra Front seemed poised to mount an all-out campaign against Hazm, the FSA group sought political refuge in the arms of the Shamiah Front, an alliance of mainly Islamist militias with a large presence in the city and province of Aleppo. When the Shamiah Front openly embraced Hazm as its newest member on Jan. 31, Nusra was forced to back down. Nusra said it was later informed by the Shamiah Front that the emir and two of the men had been executed by Hazm.
