CAIRO – A senior operative in Yemen's al-Qaida affiliate has condemned the recent bombings of local Shiite mosques by the Islamic State group.
Both al-Qaida and the Islamic State group regard Shiite Muslims as apostates. But in a video released early Friday, Khaled Batarfi said that al-Qaida leaders Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahri had both banned the practice of attacking mosques.
