Uzbek militant group pledges allegiance to Al Qaeda then claims to have attacked Russian forces in Syria

  • Youtube video link of apparent Katibat al Tawhid wal Jihad training camp in northern Syria, they dont look very moderate:

If the attack (by Katibat al Tawhid wal Jihad) is proven, this again highlights the variety of dangerous groups operating in Syria aside from IS, that main stream media news seems to be solely focusing on.

It also indicates the types of groups aside from IS that the Russian’s could be targeting that main stream media report as the FSA or moderate rebels in a broad brush fashion.

Syria is extremely complicated and reporting in a general fashion, that territory not controlled by IS is therefore controlled by FSA or moderate rebels, is not helpful.
