Rebels make gains in western countryside of Aleppo against Al Qaeda

More gains have been achieved in the western countryside of Aleppo by rebels against the Islamic State of Iraq and The Levant (ISIL), source In Brigade 9 told Zaman Alwasl.

Mujahedeen Army seized the big city of Manbij and the villages of Kafr Aleppo, Sheikh Ali and kafr Na’al, sources said.

Since last Friday, along with the Syrian Revolutionaries Front and the nascent Mujahedeen Army, the Islamic Front has been engaged in fierce fighting with ISIS in rebel-held areas.

Rebel fighters have expelled ISIL’s militants from Aleppo, Idlib and Al Bab.

The latest clashes broke out after residents accused ISIL members of killing a doctor in Syria’s northern province of Aleppo.

ISIL has been accused of horrific abuses in areas where it operates, and also of seeking hegemony by taking key roads and checkpoints from its rivals.

Some Assad opponents have even accused it of serving regime interests.
