ISIL claims ‘caliphate’ from Aleppo to Diyala

(Iraq) – The Al Qaeda breakaway group that has seized much of northern Syria and huge tracks of neighboring Iraq formally declared the creation of an Islamic state in the territory under its control. In a sign of the group’s confidence, it has now expanded its claim of leadership to encompass all the world’s Muslims.
The spokesman for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Abu Mohammed Al Adnani, made the announcement in an audio statement posted online. The extremists have long dreamed of recreating the Islamic state, or caliphate, that ruled over the Middle East for hundreds of years.
Abu Mohammed Al Adnani said the group’s chief, Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, is the new leader, or caliph, of the Islamic state. He called on those living in the areas under the organisation’s control to swear allegiance to Al Baghdadi and support him.
“The legality of all emirates, groups, states and organisations becomes null by the expansion of the caliph’s authority and the arrival of its troops to their areas,” Al Adnani said. He said that with the creation of the caliphate, the group was changing its name to just the Islamic State, dropping the mention of Iraq and the Levant.
