Two of the largest terrorist organizations in Syria are once again at war with one another after an Al-Qaeda linked group launched a surprise assault on the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) defenses in the Qalamoun Mountains.

Jabhat Al-Joulan (Al-Qaeda franchise) carried out an attack on ISIS’ positions inside the villages of Wadi Al-Zamrani and Wadi Al-Murtabiyah, resulting in a violent battle that claimed the lives 23 Jihadists.

ISIS was able to repel the large-scale assault that was launched by Jabhat Al-Joulan on Sunday; however, not before they lost 13 combatants along the western slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains.

Despite their military failure in the Qalamoun Mountains, Jabhat Al-Joulan only lost a total of 10 fighters during their battle with ISIS on Sunday, leaving the aforementioned terrorist group with the higher death toll.

Images from the battle were posted by ISIS’ official media network “Al-‘Amaq News”, along with an official statement confirming their victory on Sunday.
