DAMASCUS – Dozens were killed on Tuesday, mostly rebel fighters, during clashes between Islamist factions near the Syrian capital Damascus, activists and military sources reported.
“Pro-Assad forces try to exploit the ongoing fighting between the rebel factions of the Jaish al-Islam on the one hand and the Nusra-led al-Rahman Corps and Jaish al-Fustat on the other hand,” a spokesman for the Jaish al-Islam told ARA News, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Syrian opposition activists blamed the Jaish al-Islam and al-Rahman Corps for the fall of some locations to the regime’s army, warning if the internal conflict continued among Syrian rebels, the regime’s forces will most likely seize control of the remaining areas in the Eastern Ghouta within days.
