Al Qaeda group Jabhat Al Nusra losing influence in southern Syria

“After a meteoric rise in its fortunes in southern Syria this year, Jabhat Al Nusra is now struggling to maintain its influence and frontline role, according to rebels, opposition activists, analysts and supporters of the Al Qaeda-affiliated group.

Al Nusra carved out a prominent place for itself in the war against Syrian president Bashar Al Assad on the strategically vital southern front in the three and a half years since the start of the uprising in nearby Deraa, scoring victories against regime forces with dramatic suicide bombings, winning over defectors from moderate rebel groups and attracting cash from wealthy private donors in the Arabian Gulf.”
