INT’L — Al Qaeda, in an audio statement released Thursday, told its Syrian branch, Nusra Front, they can break organizational ties with Al Qaeda if necessary to preserve Front unity and continue their battle in Syria.

"You can sacrifice without hesitation these organizational and party ties if they conflict with your unity and working as one body," al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri said in an audio statement directed to the Nusra Front.
