Qaeda Leader tries to Halt Infighting
The leader of the Nus­ra Front, an af­fil­i­ate of Al Qae­da in Syria, on Tues­day pro­posed an ini­tia­tive aimed at halt­ing the worst in­fight­ing yet be­tween the armed op­po­nents of Pres­i­dent Ba­shar al-As­sad since the start of the con­flict near­ly three years ago. Dead­ly bat­tles have raged in re­cent days across north­ern Syria be­tween rebel forces and an­other Qae­da af­fil­i­ate, known as the Is­lam­ic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, that al­so wants to end Mr. As­sad’s gov­ern­ment, but aims to re­place it with a mono­lith­ic Sun­ni ex­trem­ist gov­ern­ment that rules both coun­tries.
