Heavy fighting between rival Islamic rebel groups has killed 62 fighters in eastern Syria.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Sunday that the rebel infighting is taking place around a cluster of three villages in the oil-rich Deir el-Zour province near the Iraqi border.
“Fighting has recently flared up there, and in the past four days 62 rebels have been killed,” the Observatory said.
“The rebel-on-rebel violence has also forced hundreds of civilians to flee their homes”, the group added.
Rebels from the Al-Qaida breakaway group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and fighters of the Al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front have fought each other for months over territory they previously captured together from President Bashar Assad’s forces.
