Syria: armed groups' statement No. 1The UK-based Syrian Observatory said that thirteen militant groups active in Syria have issued the statement No. 1 calling for all other armed groups and forces to unite under what they called  a 'clear Islamic framework'.

They declared the illegality of the opposition National Coalition and that "the interim government does not represent powers signed the statement."

The thirteen armed groups also considered that all formations set from abroad without reference to them do not represent the defected factions which in turn do not recognize such formations.

"Therefore, the coalition and the putative government headed by Ahmad Tomeh do not represent us," the statement read.

The No. 1 statement was signed by:
1. Al-Nusra Front
2. Free of Levant Movement
3. Tawhid Brigade
4. Islam Brigade
5. Hawks of Levant Brigades
6. Dawn of Levant Movement
7. Al-Noor Movement
8. Noureddine al-Zenki Phalanges
9. Right Brigade - Homs
10. Forqan Brigades - Quneitra
