The Syria branch of the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) has sharply criticized the global terror network's leader, rejecting his call for them to leave the war-ravaged country.An audio recording, purportedly made by ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani, also urged Ayman al-Zawahri to remove the leader of the Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda's affiliate in Syria. Sheikh said that last week, powerful tribal leaders called on both sides to agree on a truce that would begin Saturday. The Nusra Front agreed while ISIS gave no answer, making many tribes turn against them. On top of recent ISIS gains in Deir al-Zor, Nusra lost control of Raqqa – the only rebel-held city in Syria – to ISIS in January. If ISIS can take the entire Deir al-Zor province, it will control territory across Syria and into Iraq.
