The divisive Syrian civil war appears to be pitting Hezbollah against Al Qaeda.

Ayman al-Zawahiri, the preacher who replaced Osama bin Laden as Al Qaeda's chief after the latter's death, has urged Islamist militants to put aside their sectarian differences and unite against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. He made the announcement in a 22-minute recording posted on Islamist militant websites, Reuters reported.
