Six Syrian rebel groups are calling on two major rival rebel factions battling each other in the north to end the infighting.

Six groups released a statement late Wednesday urging the rival factions to ‘cease the fire immediately’ and resolve their differences before an Islamic court.

The two major factions battling in the north are al-Qaeda’s Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant on one side,and the Western-backed Free Syrian Army’s Northern Storm Brigade on the other.

The infighting has become an increasingly prominent component in Syria’s conflict,now in its third year.
