Zawahiri orders the abolition of the Islamic State in Iraq and The Levant

The leader of al-Qaeda, Ayman Zawahiri, stated in a recording released by the satellite channel Al-Jazeera that ordered the abolition of the Islamic state in Iraq and the Levant. He stressed that victory on the Syrian front will come from its branch organisation in Syria.

Zawahiri stated that the he was abolishing the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant and that it would continue to operate under the name the Islamic State of Iraq. He also confirmed that the “Victory Front for the People of Syria” would assume control in Syria under the general command of al-Qaeda

Thus, Zawahiri has clarified that the areas of Iraq will come under the command of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syrian regions will come under the “Victory Front for the People of Syria”.
