Al-Qaeda Militants Accuse Islamic State Of Being A Con

aghestani militants from Al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate have accused the Islamic State (IS) group of conning new recruits with misleading hype and spin.

IS claims to have established a “state” in the vast swaths of land it has captured in Iraq and Syria are nothing more than “a mirage and illusion in HD format on the screens of your gadgets,” a group of Daghestani militants from Jabhat al-Nusra said.

“We started to understand that the IS that is propagandized via the Internet is one thing, but the real IS is a different thing altogether,” they said in a recent interview with Nusra’s new Russian-language media wing, White Minaret.
