Suqour al-Ezz (also spelled as Suqour al-Izz) is a terrorist group composed of primarily Saudi jihadists that have been active during the Syrian Civil War.
Founded in February 2013, due to personal disputes with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and the al-Nusra Front, it originally operated as an independent jihadist group while still cooperating on the battlefield with both groups.
However, in January 2014, the terrorist group joined the al-Nusra Front ranks.
