Syria: 11 Opposition Groups Form 'Unified Syrian Islamic Front'

Eleven Syrian groups and movements opposing the Syrian regime have declared the formation of the "Unified Syrian Islamic Front," Al-Sharq al-Awsat reported Jan. 20. Al-Nusrah Front has refused to join the new front, and will restrict itself to coordinating with it in the field. The two sides will establish a joint Sharia court that is called "Sharia Society Court in the City of Aleppo." Syrian President Bashar al Assad's forces remain a potent threat in the country.
