Two prominent rebel factions reportedly clashed inside the East Ghouta town of Jisreen on Monday, resulting in a fierce battle that ended in the expulsion of one of the groups.

According to local reports, Faylaq Al-Rahman carried out an assault on Jaysh Al-Islam’s positions inside Jisreen after an unknown tiff sparked turmoil between the former allies.

As a result of the attack, Faylaq Al-Rahman seized the Jaysh Al-Islam headquarters in Jisreen, forcing the latter to withdraw after being overrun.

This is the first reported conflict between the two factions inside the town of Jisreen; however, this is not the first time that they have clashed inside the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus.
