Russian bid to blacklist Syrian rebel groups blocked at UN

Fighters from Jaish al-Islam hold a position in the rebel-held town of Douma, on the eastern edges of the capital, on April 10, 2016Britain, France, the United States and Ukraine on Tuesday blocked a Russian request to add two Syrian rebel groups to a UN terror blacklist and sideline them from the Syrian peace process, diplomats said. Russia had requested that Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam) and Ahrar al-Sham be added to the sanctions list for their ties to Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group. Adding names to the UN sanctions list requires a consensus decision from the 15-member council and after objections were raised by the four countries, Russia’s request was rejected.
