Two of world’s most dangerous and notorious terrorist organizations might join forces
ISIS and Al-Qaeda are planning to become one, declared the Iraqi vice-president Ayad Allawi.
Allawi launched the warning after the Iraqi troops started to gather more and more ground in front of the jihadists troops from Mosul, writes Reuters.
‘The negotiations started now. There are discussions and a constant dialogue between the messengers of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Ayman al-Zawahiri’, added the Iraqi leader.
ISIS divorced from Al-Qaida in 2014
Since then, the two terrorist organizations became rivals and fought to draw more and more recruits.
The intelligence agencies are not yet sure how the two organizations might begin the collaboration, especially since ISIS conquered numerous territories in the northern region of Iraq, where Baghdadi declared established his khalifate.
Last October, the Iraqi forces supported by an American coalition initiated the battle for Mosul.
The only major difference between the two coalitions is related to their principles.
If Al-Qaeda from Iraq wants to proclaim the Islamic State of the khalifate immediately, ISIS wants to eliminate the occidental influence from the Middle East.
Another difference is related to, of course, their strategies.
