“Eleven Islamist rebel groups in Syria have announced they do not recognise the authority of the main opposition alliance, the National Coalition.”

“The signatories include members of the Free Syrian Army as well as more radical Islamists – among them the powerful al-Nusra Front…”

“The Istanbul-based Western-backed National Coalition was formed in November 2012 and is recognised by more than 100 countries as a legitimate representative of the Syrian opposition.”

“The statement also called on “all military and civilian forces to unite under a clear Islamic framework based on Sharia [Islamic law], which should be the sole source of legislation”.”

“A…statement disavowing the…Syrian National Coalition (SNC) as…an umbrella group and calling for a new organization of rebels seems to be taking hold, with more than 30 rebel factions now officially on board in disavowing the faction.”
