The chief of Al-Qaeda's Syria affiliate described rival ISIS's self-proclaimed caliphate as "illegitimate," in a wide-ranging television interview aired Wednesday.In the second part of his appearance on the Qatari-owned Al-Jazeera news channel, Nusra Front leader Abu Mohammad al-Jolani criticised ISIS at length and said he did not foresee a reconciliation between the two jihadis groups soon. This conflict, Jolani said, had seen ISIS kill more than 700 members of Nusra Front in a single battle, as well as women and children.As in the first interview, Jolani again rejected political solutions to Syria's four-year war, saying an end to the crisis could only come through "jihad," or holy war.
