In this study, we present the investigation of eleven recurring solar jets originated from two different sites (site 1 and site 2) close to each other (~ 11 Mm) in the NOAA active region (AR) 12035 during 15-16 April 2014. The jets were observed by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) telescope onboard the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) satellite. Two jets were observed by the Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences (ARIES), Nainital, India telescope in Hα . On 15 April flux emergence is important in site 1 while on 16 April flux emergence and cancellation mechanisms are involved in both sites. The jets of both sites have parallel trajectories and move to the south with a speed between 100 and 360 km s-1. We observed some connection between the two sites with some transfer of brightening. The jets of site 2 occurred during the second day and have a tendency to move towards the jets of site 1 and merge with them. We conjecture that the slippage of the jets could be explained by the complex topology of the region with the presence of a few low-altitude null points and many quasi-separatrix layers (QSLs), which could intersect with one another.
