The Syrian army continues its mop-up operations against the militants across the northern city of Aleppo, killing dozens of them, Al-Alam reports.

Army troops have killed a number of al-Qaeda-linked militants in the city of al-Rashedin on the outskirts of Aleppo.

The army troops also restored the security alongside the strategic road of Khanaser-Aleppo.

Similar operations were carried out in Idlib were the government forces have clashed with a group of militants in the outskirts of the city.

The army has recently conducted successful clean-up operations in the country, inflicting heavy losses on the Takfiri militants.

Meanwhile, al-Qaeda-linked group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has had several clashes with other militant group of al-Nusra Front in the border city of Aldana in suburb of Idlib.

According to reports dozens of militants were killed in their internal clashes.

The fighting between armed groups have left dozens of people killed and wounded in the north of Syria, particularly in the Latakia and Idleb provinces.

Some observers think that the tensions between the al-Qaeda-linked groups in Syria will increase primarily for power and money reasons.

This infighting is a new low for an opposition that was never able to unite its military or civilian operations.
