Six Syrian rebel groups came out with a call to the two major rebel factions – al-Qaida’s Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant on one side and the Western-supported Free Syrian Army’s Northern Storm Brigade on the other – that are fighting each other in Syria to end their internal strife, AP reported.
The rebel groups released a statement late Wednesday urging the two rival factions to “cease the fire immediately” and seek a resolution from an Islamic court.
The infighting is just as intense as the war against the Syrian regime has been in the three-year civil war.
The statement was reported by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which documents the civil war and rebel-on-rebel fighting.
The Islamic Army and the Tawheed Brigade are two of the press release signatories.Jewish Press News Briefs
