A Dubai-based Arab TV station reported that the Khorasan Group cited by US President Barack Obama as a target of US bombing last week in Syria is really a special unit, called Wolf, of al-Qaida’s Syrian branch, the Nusra Front.

Jenan Moussa of Dubai-based Alaan TV gathered exclusive images and documents from the bombed headquarters of the so-called Khorasan Group in Aleppo.

Based on the evidence, the report concludes that besides the Wolf unit, there were other foreign fighters of Nusra Front staying at the compound.

A paper with 14 names on it was found, 13 of whom are mentioned as part of the Nusra Front “Wolf unit.”
