US names two Syria rebels 'global terrorists'

A member of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) speaks into a microphone in Aleppo on November 13, 2013The US government officially designated as “global terrorists” Wednesday two figures from rival jihadist groups in Syria, warning other rebel factions in the war-torn country to stay away from both men. The US Treasury added Saudi-born Abd Al-Rahman Muhammad Zafir Al-Dubaysi al-Juhni and Iraq native Abd Al-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli to its list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists. The two were cited for their ties to, respectively, Al-Qaeda operations in Syria, and Qaeda breakaway group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Al-Juhni is part of a group of senior Qaeda operatives in Syria formed to attack Western targets outside the country and also to mediate tensions between ISIL and the Al-Nusra Front, the local Qaeda affiliate, the Treasury said.
