BEIRUT — A foreign fighter in Syria says jihadis from the Caucasus have formed an independent fighting force.

In a video posted online Wednesday by the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a man wearing a camouflage uniform is seen standing among other fighters, who he says have come to Syria from the Caucasus and Russia to wage jihad.
