Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri called on rebels in Syria to stop fighting each other as a faction linked to his group pushed rival insurgents from a northern town on Thursday.Zawahri urged the rebels to set up a committee to sort out their differences, according to an audio recording released on Islamist websites.In northern Syria, where hardline Islamists have taken stretches of territory from government forces, ISIS fighters took full control of the town of Manbij, northeast of the commercial hub of Aleppo, the Observatory said.The pro-opposition Observatory, which monitors developments in Syria through a network of activist, military and medical sources, said at least nine non-ISIS rebels were killed in the clashes, as well as a number of ISIS fighters.
