Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, 2001

(Worthy News) - U.S. intelligence officials say al Qaeda has seen its standing as the leader of the global jihad movement "dented," and regard an audio recording reportedly released over the weekend by the group's leader as an attempt to reclaim its prominence.

Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri called for "unity" among jihadis in taking on the West, encouraged strikes at the "heartland" of the U.S. and praised recent attacks on Jews in Israel in an audio recording released Sunday.

"Reports of a new Zawahri statement calling for unity in light of developments in Syria are his latest attempts to avoid being further sidelined" by the Islamic State, said a U.S. intelligence official speaking on background. [ Source ]
