A foreign fighter in Syria says jihadis from the Caucuses have formed an independent fighting force.
The group is called The Mujahedin of the Caucuses and the Levant. The man says the group has no links with al-Qaida-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant groups which are among the most effective opposition forces. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights a video posted online by the group was taken in the northern Idlib province. (AP)
