DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:00 A.M.) – All hell has broken out in rural Damascus as thousands of civilians took to the streets to protest rebel factions killing one another on Sunday.

Scores of civilians were wounded, and many shot dead, as Jaish Al-Islam tried to disperse protesters in the Irbeen district among other places:

Remarkably, the protesters called Jaish Al-Islam fighters “Shabiha”, a derogatory term otherwise used for pro-government militias.

Heavy infighting continued into the night as Jaish Al-Islam battled it out with Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, Ahrar al-Sham and Failaq Al-Sham in what can only be described as the most intense rebel infighting in the East Ghouta region thus far.
