Syria in Last 24 Hours: Infighting Continues among Rival Militant Groups in Daraa Countryside
The Al-Nusra Front, the ISIL and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) continued their infighting in Daraa countryside in the Southern parts of Syria.
The Al-Nusra Front, the ISIL and the FSA terrorists have started their heavy clashes in the town of Al-Qahtanieh in Daraa countryside since Monday.
The Al-Nusra Front and the ISIL are trying hard to get rid of the non-Takfiri terrorists such as FSA.
Also in the past 24 hours, the Syrian army continued to tighten noose on the foreign-backed Takfiri militants in many areas across the country on Thursday.
The army troops killed terrorists and destroyed a mortar launcher belonging to them in Daraa al-Balad neighborhood in Daraa city.
Meanwhile, the army destroyed the ISIL hideouts in the villages of Rasm al-Tawil, Rasm al-Sab’a and Manoukh in the Eastern countryside of Homs province.
Elsewhere, the Syrian government forces struck a heavy blow at the foreign-backed militants in Idlib on Thursday.
The Syrian army destroyed a convoy of vehicles belonging to the al-Nusra Front terrorists in al-Mutaleq roundabout in the vicinity of Mastoumeh village in the Northern Idlib province, where terrorists have been flowing into the Syrian territory across the Turkish border.
The army also killed a large group of terrorists of Al-Nusra Front in Afes town in the countryside of Idlib.
Meanwhile, the Syrian troops destroyed vehicles and weapons of al-Nusra terrorists in the villages of Kfar Lata, Sarmin, Fayloun and the vicinity of the brick factory after. A large group of the Takfiri militants were also killed during the military operations.
A Twitter account with over 8,000 followers actively engaged in recruiting new people for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group and transporting them to Syria may have been operated by a twenty-something girl from Seattle, Channel 4 reported.
Syria was hit by a violent unrest since mid-March 2011, where the Syrian government accuses foreign actors of orchestrating the conflict by supporting the militant opposition groups with arms and money.
The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 210,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.
Over 3.8 million Syrians have left their country since the beginning of the crisis. According to reports, more than seven million Syrians have become internally displaced.
The Takfiri terrorist group, with members from several western countries, controls swathes of land in Syria and Iraq, and has been carrying out horrific acts of violence such as public decapitations and crucifixions against all communities such as Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians.
