The leader of the Nusra Front, an affiliate of Al Qaeda in Syria, on Tuesday proposed an initiative aimed at halting the worst infighting yet between the armed opponents of President Bashar al-Assad since the start of the conflict nearly three years ago. Deadly battles have raged in recent days across northern Syria between rebel forces and another Qaeda affiliate, known as the "Islamic State in Iraq and Syria," or "ISIS," that also wants to end Mr. Assad’s government--but aims to replace it with a monolithic Sunni extremist government that rules both countries.
