The Alliance to Support Islam[2] is an alliance between the Al-Qaeda affiliates Guardians of Religion Organization and Ansar al-Tawhid, two groups that operate in Syria.[3] The group is strongly loyal to Ayman al-Zawahiri, who rejected Joulani as their leader and the transformation of al-Qaeda in Syria into HTS. It is led by Abu Humam al-Shami.[4] It is thought that the group has about 2,000-3,000 active fighters.[5][better source needed]
