As The New York Times reported, citing employees of European and American intelligence services, “al-Qaeda” (banned in Russia as a terrorist organization) intends to create in Syria an alternative headquarters after serious losses from the raids of drones in Pakistan. To do this, the terrorists are willing to engage in especially in a tough confrontation with the “Islamic state” (banned in Russia as a terrorist organization).
It is noted that so far al-Qaeda has abandoned the idea of creating their education (Emirate) on the territory of Syria, merely supporting organization “al-Nusra Front”. Now, however, the terrorists decided that the middle Eastern state could be a springboard for attacks on Europe and America, as well as to attract new fighters from neighbouring countries – Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon.
According to experts interviewed by the newspaper “al-Qaeda” in Syria, uses a different tactic than the “Islamic state”. If the latter relies on the seizure of territories and destruction of opponents, al-Qaeda tends to amplify the effect of including among the moderate groups fighting against President Bashar al-Assad.
Among the possible leaders of al Qaeda in Syria the magazine says the former Colonel of the Egyptian army of Saif al-Adlya, which is included in the list of most wanted terrorists in the world for the bombings at the U.S. embassies in Africa in 1998. For his capture promised a reward of $5 million Also in Syria can be answered in the “al-Qaeda” for the international relations of Abdul Khair al-Misri, the former Deputy head of al-Qaeda in Iraq,” Abul Qassam brigades, and Abu Muhammad al-Misri, who was one of the organizers of the attacks on the USA of 11 September 2001.
