Pro-West militants, ISIL resume infighting in Aleppo
Wed Jan 29, 2014 08:51:39

Pro-West militants in Syria have resumed battles against the terrorist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Maaret al-Ratiq village in Aleppo city's northern countryside.

Fierce fighting has since January 3 pitted three massive militant alliances against ISIL, killing more than 1,400 on both sides.

In recent weeks, ISIL has made suffered major losses in Aleppo and Idlib provinces, but re-consolidated itself in Raqa to the east.

While pro-West militants initially welcomed al-Qaeda militants in Syria, they turned against ISIL after its quest for hegemony and horrific abuses angered much of the opposition.
