Local Editor

The main extremist rebel groups in Aleppo province, including al-Nusra Front and Liwa al-Tawhid, have rejected a newly-formed Syrian opposition bloc, saying they want an "Islamic" state, in a video posted on the Internet Monday.
"We, the fighting squads of Aleppo city and province, unanimously reject the conspiratorial project of the so-called "National Coalition" and announce our consensus to establish an Islamic state in Syria," the statement said.
In parallel, the speaker in the video listed a number of armed rebels groups that agree with the declared position.
The list included: Free Levant Brigades, Syria Free, Islamic Aleppo Brigades, Islamic Dawn Movement, Shield of Nation, Andan Brigades, Islam Brigades, Mohammad's Army Brigade, Victory Brigade, Baz Battalion, Sultan Mohammed battalion, and the Islam Armor Brigade.
