The ISIL-FSA clashes erupted after the FSA targeted the ISIL’s concentration centers with semi-heavy and heavy weapons as well as artillery units. Tens of militants from both sides have been killed and dozens more injured in the heavy clashes.

Meantime, in the Northern Hasaka province, the ISIL has been preparing itself for attacking the two towns of Tal Hamis and Tal Barak which are under the control of its rival insurgent group, the Islamic Front.

Kurdish sources said after the ISIL attacked the Kurdish Hasaka province, the Popular Committees for Supporting the Syrian Kurds have been on alert to confront any possible ISIL attack.

After more than two years of fighting side-by-side and leading one of the bloodiest conflicts in the recent history of the Middle-East, al-Qaeda affiliated groups have been making increasing moves against each other in the last few months.

Militants in Syria have been committing numerous war crimes against people and Syrian army soldiers throughout the country during their bloody war.

Sources said the number of antigovernment combat factions has reached 1750, including the FSA, “ISIL, and other groups working for different agendas.

The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
