CAIRO---Al Qaeda s central leadership
broke off ties with one of the most pow-
erful militant groups in Syria, known as
the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,
and distanced itself from the rebel infight-
ing in that country s civil war, according
to a statement yesterday.
The announcement appeared to be an
attempt by al Qaeda to put its house in order
and reassert influence among rival Islamic
groups that have turned against one another
in Syria, where the groups have joined rebels
in fighting to topple President Bashar Assad.
In past months, the Islamic State---created by
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of al-Qaeda s
branch in Iraq---has increasingly clashed with
other hard-line Islamic factions, including assas-
sinating commanders of rival groups with car
bombs and shootings.
Al-Baghdadi created the Islamic State of Iraq
and the Levant last year in defiance of orders
from the terror network s leader, Ayman al-
Zawahri, who at the time ordered him to remain
the head of al-Qaeda s branch in Iraq, while
authorising another group, Jabhat al-Nusra, or
Nusra Front, to operate in Syria in al-Qaeda s
name. Al-Baghdadi went ahead and created
the new group, becoming a powerful force in
Syria s conflict.
In yesterday s statement, al Qaeda s general
command announced it has "no connection"
with the Islamic State, underlined that the
group "is not a branch of the al Qaeda organ-
isation," and said al-Qaeda "is not responsible
for its actions."
Al Qaeda did not condone the group s creation
"and in fact ordered it to stop," the statement
It also condemned the infighting among
Islamic groups, saying, "We distance ourselves
from the sedition taking place among the muja-
hedeen factions (in Syria) and of the forbidden
blood shed by any faction." It warned that
mujahedeen, of holy warriors, must recognise
the "enormity of the catastrophe" caused by
"this sedition." The rebel-on-rebel fighting has added
another bloody dimension to the Syrian crisis, which
erupted in March 2011 as an uprising against President
Bashar Assad s rule but later evolved into an armed insur-
gency and civil war.
Charles Lister of the Brookings Doha Center said the
al-Qaeda statement reflected its "attempt to definitively
re-assert some level of authority over the jihad in Syria."
It also showed al Qaeda leadership s failure to take a gen-
uinely commanding line in the rivalry between the Islamic
State and the Nusra Front, and made it inevitable that
al-Zawahri had to issue a decisive ruling with permanent
consequences, said Lister. (AP)

Iran has received the first part of its US$4.2
billion in oil funds that had been frozen overseas
due to sanctions, the country s state-run Press
In November, Iran and six world powers reached
an interim deal under which Iran agreed to limit
its nuclear program in exchange for an easing of
The six world powers, called the P5+1, include
the five permanent members of the UN Security
Council---the United States, Britain, China, Russia
and France---as well as Germany
According to the semi-official Iranian Students
News Agency, the first installment amounts to
US$550 million. As part of the temporary, six-
month deal reached in November, world powers
agreed to suspend sanctions on items such as gold
and petrochemical exports. That suspension would
provide Iran with about US$1.5 billion in revenue,
according to the US White House.
Iran, meanwhile, must dilute its stockpile of ura-
nium enriched to 20 per cent, halt all enrichment
above US per cent and dismantle the technical
equipment required to do that enrichment. The
five per cent enrichment level is well below the
level needed to make nuclear weapons. (CNN)
