ISIS-linked Shuhada Al-Yarmouk claimed its fighters repelled a major offensive launched by Syria’s al-Qaeda, Jabhet Al-Nusra, on Nafa’a town in northwestern Darra.

Al-Nusra and allied rebel groups started their offensive by bombarding the town with tanks and artillery. The attacking forces managed to infiltrate into the town for hours before being forced to flee after losing at least 24 fighters.

Shuhada Al-Yarmouk claimed to have killed Al-Nusra general commander in the assault, arrested scores.

The two groups are engaged in fierce fight since Shuhada Al-Yarmouk pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS), Al-Nusra’s rival terror group.

Damascus:
In Damascus, pro-Syrian government Palestinian fighters foiled an attempt made by Islamic fighters to infiltrate into Al-Zahira Al-Jadida district in the southern outskirts of the capital.

A military source said Palestinian militants managed to kill a number of Islamic fighters, including a key commander.

Idlib:
In the northern province of Idlib, residents of the bordering town of Sarmada took the streets to voice their anger over Jabhet Al-Nusra after one of its members has severely beaten two locals.

The protestors gathered in front of the town’s Courthouse, demanding Al-Nusra militants out of the town as their conduct became unbearable.

Local activists said at least two similar protests have previously occurred against the terror group.
