Rebel Clashes in Syria Leave Almost 500 Dead
(Daily Alert)

At least 482 people have been killed in clashes between Syrian rebels and the al-Qaeda-linked Islamist State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the toll comprised 85 civilians, 240 rebels and 157 ISIS fighters. ISIS had killed 42 prisoners in Aleppo, while 47 members of the jihadist group had been executed by rebels.

    The fighting has spread across four provinces in rebel-held parts of northern Syria over the past week. The latest clashes erupted when rebels led by the Islamic Front launched a series of co-ordinated strikes against ISIS in an offensive backed by the opposition National Coalition. (BBC News)
