Defected Commander: Differences Widening among ISIL Leaders in Raqqa
A defected commander of ISIL disclosed that deep differences have risen among the Takfiri terrorist group’s leaders in the city of Raqqa.
“The gap has widened among senior ISIL leaders in Raqqa and from time to time clashes erupt in the city,” Abu Al-Walid al-Tunisi who has recently defected from the ISIL terrorist group said.
He reiterated that deep differences have erupted between governor of Raqqa Abu Luqman and the governor in charge of ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baqdadi’s affairs in Syria.
Al-Tunisi said the reason for his defection from the terrorist group was inhumane behavior and concern over political confrontations among ISIL leaders.
Earlier this month, heavy fighting erupted between two rival Takfiri terrorist groups in the Syrian province of Homs on Wednesday.
Terrorists of the Al-Nusra Front and Katiba Shohada al-Bayaza engaged in fierce clashes in the Homs countryside.
According to reports, the Al-Nusra Front militants destroyed the positions of Katiba Shohada al-Bayaza in the Northeastern parts of Homs province.
The Arab media reported that the main reason for Al-Nusra Front’s attacks on Katiba Shohada al-Bayaza’s positions was disobedience of the group’s commander from Al-Nusra Front as well as the group’s allegiance to the ISIL.
The clashes took place a day after the Takfiri terrorists fighting against the Damascus government in Southern Aleppo asked for urgent help from other militant groups as they were coming under a tighter siege by the Syrian army and Hezbollah forces.
“The terrorists who have come under the Syrian army’s siege in the Southern parts of the Aleppo province have asked other terrorist groups to rush to their aid,” the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen TV quoted local sources as saying.
The infighting among the rival terrorist groups has risen in Syria as a result of their defeats by the Russian airstrikes and Syrian army across the Muslim country.
On October 20, heavy fighting erupted between rival Takfiri terrorist groups in the Syrian Province of Idlib.
Terrorists of Jund Al-Aqsa had engaged in fierce clashes with Ahrar al-Sham terrorist group in al-Tamanna region of the Idlib province.
Clashes had erupted between the terrorists organizations due to the increased withdrawals of some of the Takfiri groups from al-Ghab plain in Hama countryside, leaving at least 7 militants dead.
