US declaring Syrian rebel group as terrorist body

Published: 12.10.12, 21:17 / Israel News

The Obama administration is declaring a Syrian rebel group with alleged ties to al-Qaeda as a terrorist organization. It is an effort to blunt the influence of extremists as the US steps up cooperation with the Syrian opposition.


The move hasn't been announced officially but was included in the Federal Register on Monday. The State Department's action blocks Jabhat al-Nusra's assets in the US and bars Americans from doing business with the group. (AP)
