Turkey added Al-Qaeda's franchise in neighboring Syria to a list of terrorist organizations on Tuesday, in a sign of the country's growing concern over the rise of radicals across the border.Although other jihadist groups fighting in Syria's civil war claim to be inspired by Al-Qaeda, the Al-Nusra Front is the only one to be officially sanctioned by the group's leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri.Despite sharing an ideology, the Al-Nusra Front is considered to be a less radical force than Syria's other main Al-Qaeda-inspired group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
