(Jaysh Ansar Allah)

A new militant group calling itself "The Army of the Supporters of God" (Jaysh Ansar Allah) pledged to avenge the victims killed in a U.S. raid on a village in Syria last week.
"We pledge before God and before the Muslim nation to avenge the victims of this aggression the shed Muslim blood," a masked speaker reading out the statement said in the video that the groups posted on the Internet. The speaker was surrounded by two masked men sporting their guns on his left and right. The group also threatened to assassinate Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al Maliki and other members of his government for what the group described as "blind loyalty to America and Israel."
