Islamist militants reject 'hollow' Syria peace talks
News   /   Syrian Crisis

An alliance of Syrian Islamist militants rejected upcoming peace talks today, meaning that even if the talks reach an unlikely breakthrough in the three year old crisis, it will be harder to implement it on the ground.

The opposition coalition, agreed on Saturday to attend the talks beginning on Wednesday in Geneva.

But the so called Islamic Front, an alliance of several Islamist fighting forces that represents a large portion of the militants on the ground, said today it rejected the talks.

Syria's future would be "formulated here on the ground, and signed with blood on the front lines, not in hollow conferences attended by those who don't even represent themselves", Abu Omar, a leading member of the so called Islamic Front said on his Twitter account.
