UNSC Unanimously Agrees to Enlist Jabhat al-Nusra on Terrorist Organization List

May 31, 2013 – NEW YORK – SANA (Ghossoun) – The UN Security Council unanimously agreed to enlist al-Qaeda linked-Jabhat al-Nusra on the list of terrorist organizations, US diplomats announced.

” The 15 UNSC members unanimously supported enlisting this organization on the list of terrorist organizations,” Associated Press Agency quoted US diplomats as saying on Thursday, adding the resolution will be officially announced later.

Last December, the United States blacklisted the terrorist Jabhat al-Nusra as a terrorist organization for its close relationship with al-Qaeda.

But the U.S., last Tuesday, welcomed the European Union’s decision to lift the ban on the supply of arms to the so-called Syrian opposition which the news reports, including the western ones, confirm that Jabhat al-Nusra is an essential component in that opposition.
