Clashes erupted between the armed rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and al-Qaeda affiliated militants once again in Northern Syria. According to FNA dispatches, disputes resulted in armed clashes between the members of the so-called “Iraq and Sham Islamic Emirate” and FSA militants in al-Reqqa province in Northern Syria. Tens of militants have been killed and dozens more have been injured during the clashes which erupted over control of a region in al-Reqqa and the sugarcanes stolen from al-Reqqa sugar cane factory. Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against the Syrian police, border guards, statesmen, army and the civilians being reported across the country. Thousands of people have been killed since terrorist and armed groups turned protest rallies into armed clashes. The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.
