The Imam Bukhari Jamaat is an Uzbek jihadist group aligned in Syria with Jabhat al-Nusrah (JN), Ahrar al Sham, Sayfullakh Shishani’s jamaat (a second Uzbekistan jihadist group in Syria), and the Army of Emigrants and Supporters (aka Jaish al Muhajireen wal Ansar). It is most recently pledged to Taliban leader Mullah Omar, a move that came in November 2014, after a small number of their ranks pledged to IS' Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. However, it remains independent, training its own fighters and fighting in Layramoun and Az Zahraa in northwest Aleppo, Syria. The jamaat is comprised of fighters from the Caucasus Emirate. The number of Uzbek fighters in Syria is estimated at approximately 500, with factions supporting either the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham (ISIS) or JN and allied groups.Logos:Image 1: "The group's logo -1" Image 2: "The group's logo -2"Centre of OperationsImam Bukhari Jamaat has been involved in battles in Aleppo areas such as Leramoun and Zahraa:

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.
