Confusion: Islamic State v al-Qaeda: the battle within jihad

Little-noticed, al-Qaeda has a new capital. While its leader languishes in an unknown hiding place - probably in the Pakistan-Afghan borderlands - his followers in Syria have seized an entire province from the hands of the Assad regime, and its main city, Idlib.

This means that the rival wings of militant jihad have two competing centres: Idlib, in north-west Syria, and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant's (Isil) headquarters in Raqqa, north-east Syria.
