Al Qaeda-linked group urges Iraq Sunnis not to lay down arms

The jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant Tuesday called members of the opposition Syrian National Coalition a "legitimate target" in an audio message from an ISIL spokesman.

Abu Mohammed al-Adnani said in the message published on a jihadist website that ISIL considers the opposition Syrian National "Coalition and national council and the chief of staff and military council (...) have declared and begun a war on it".

He said: "Everyone who belongs to this entity is a legitimate target for us, in all places, unless he publicly declares his rejection of that group and of fighting the mujahedeen."
