Negotiations under way for Al-Qaeda and Daesh to merge


Asharq Al-Awsat, the Pan-Arab daily edited in London, has revealed that the leaders of Al-Qaeda and Daesh are currently negotiating in Iraq for their coming together as one entity.

According to the daily, the merger would be effected through the creation of a third organization to which the fighters of the existing organizations would gradually be transferred.

Asharq Al-Awsat is owned by the son of King Salman of Saudi Arabia.

A radical shake up of alliances is taking place across the Middle East.
