The Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) has denied it was behind the killing of a prominent Al-Qaeda figure last week and appeared to reject an ultimatum from its rival the Nusra Front to accept mediation or face all-out assault.ISIS was responding to the killing last Sunday of Abu Khaled al-Suri, who was close to both Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri and his predecessor Osama bin Laden. Rival Islamist fighters blamed ISIS, locked in conflict for more than a year with other rebels battling to overthrow President Bashar Assad, for Suri's death.More than 3,000 people have been killed this year in fighting between rebel groups and ISIS militants controlling northern and eastern Syria, an internal conflict which has seriously hampered their military campaign against Assad's forces.
