ISIL deploys in Syria border town

An Iraqi soldier monitors the Iraq-Syria border point, Abu Kamal, on July 22, 2012Jihadists from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant bolstered their presence Thursday in the Syrian town of Albu Kamal on the border with Iraq, a monitoring group said. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the move came a day after members in the town of Al-Qaeda’s franchise in Syria, Al-Nusra Front, pledged loyalty to ISIL, giving it control over both sides of the frontier. ISIL, which aspires to create an Islamic state that straddles Iraq and Syria, has spearheaded a lightning jihadist offensive that has already captured swathes of territory north and west of Baghdad. Pro-ISIL militants posted videos on YouTube showing a convoy of cars and trucks entering Albu Kamal and flying the jihadists’ black flag.
