Damascus - Syria has sent a list of 142 international Islamic terrorists killed fighting in Syria to the United Nations Security Council, and many were found with links to al-Qaeda.
Islamic jihadists fighting against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad have their own agenda in the war-torn country. Digital Journal reported their aim is to form an Islamic state under sharia law. Furthermore they rejected the legitimacy of the newly formed Syrian National Coalition.
The Telegraph reported Syrian newspaper Al-Watan has published a list of 142 foreign jihadists that have "contributed to the strength of rebels fighting against the regime." Dates and locations of the deaths were included with the list. Those named include "47 Saudis, 24 Libyans, 11 Afghans, 10 Tunisians, nine Egyptians, six Qataris and five Lebanese."
A previous list sent to the UN Security Council contained the names of 108 foreign jihadists from 19 different countries RT reported. In addition to the countries named, other deceased jihadists came from Algeria, Azerbaijan, Chad, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Pakistan, Palestine, Sudan, Tunisia, Turkey, Yemen and Chechnya. Since the list was sent a Kosovo Albanian jihadist was also killed in the fighting. The list only covers dead fighters, thus the countries represented could be far more.
The UN Security Council has thus far failed to acknowledge that Syria is a bastion for international terrorists.
