    BEIRUT, Lebanon — The leader of the powerful jihadist rebel force, Al-Nusra Front, was wounded by army bombing near the Syrian capital on Wednesday, a watchdog said.​

    Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani was wounded with other members of his group in southern Damascus province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, citing militants in the area.​

    Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman was only immediately able to say that Jawlani had been hit in the foot.​

    Al-Nusra, which seeks to establish an Islamic state in Syria and has been termed a “terrorist organisation” by Washington, is among the most prominent organisations involved in the country’s conflict.​

    It has gained notoriety for suicide bombings but also won admiration from other insurgents for its reputation as a formidable fighting force leading attacks on battle fronts across Syria.​

    Last month, Jawlani pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri.​
