Al-Qaeda leader denounces Isis 'madness and lies' as two terrorist groups compete for dominance | The Independent

Al-Qaeda leader denounces Isis 'madness and lies' as two terrorist groups compete for dominance | The Independent: The leader of al-Qaeda has attacked Isis for “madness” and “exceeding the limits of extremism” as the two terror groups continue to compete for territory and supporters around the world.

Ayman al-Zawahiri, who succeeded Osama bin Laden when he was killed in 2011, criticised Isis for killing and “slandering” his own jihadis.

In an audio message, he branded the rival group’s members “cowards” and liars with a “thirsty desire for authority”.

“Isis was struck with madness in takfir [declaring other Muslims to be apostates] and exceeded the limits of extremism,” al-Zawahiri said.
