MOSCOW: Uzbek fighters from an Al-Qaeda-linked militant organisation have thrown their support behind the militant Islamic State (IS) group controlling swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq.

A top leader for the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), an ally of the Taliban that has been mainly based in Pakistan's tribal belt since the US-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, announced its backing for IS.

“Hereby, on behalf of all members of our movement, in line with our sacred duties, I declare that we are in the same ranks with the Islamic State in this continued war between Islam and [non-Muslims],” Usman Gazi wrote in an online statement on Sept 26.

Gazi praised the Islamic State for its refusal to recognise state borders and said he hoped the group would soon take control of Palestine and the Muslim holy cities of Makkah and Madina.
