A group that tracks jihadist chatter on the Internet says shadowy militants have claimed responsibility for dozens of attacks across Syria, including a raid last week on a pro-government TV station that killed seven people.

The SITE monitoring group said late Tuesday that a group calling itself the Al-Nusra Front said in statements on jihadist websites that the attacks sought revenge against the regime of President Bashar Assad for killing Syrians.

Little is known about the Al-Nusra Front, and the statements could not be independently verified. The group has claimed past attacks in similar posts.

Syria’s widening insurgency has raised fears that Islamist extremists are playing a larger role in the fighting.
