Infighting erupts between rival Takfiris in Syria

356321_Iraq-Militants1Deadly clashes have broken out between rival al-Qaeda-affiliated militants in eastern Syria, amid growing infighting among the foreign-backed Takfiri groups operating in the Arab country.
The fresh wave of infighting erupted after militants from the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) attacked the al-Nusra Front’s base in the countryside of Syria’s eastern city of Deir ez-Zor, killing several of them.
Following the deadly clashes, a third armed group linked to the terrorist al-Nusra Front attacked an ISIL base and killed many of its members in retaliation for their earlier assault.
Last month, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said infighting among extremist militants operating in Syria had left around 3,300 casualties since January.
A British defense study published last September showed that about 100,000 militants, fragmented into 1,000 groups, were fighting in Syria against its government and people.
Foreign-sponsored Takfiri groups have been behind many of the deadly bomb attacks targeting both civilians and government institutions across the Arab country over the past three years.
Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since 2011. Reports say some 140,000 people have so far been killed and millions of others displaced because of the foreign-backed crisis.
