TEHRAN (FNA)- The ISIL terrorists launched an attack on the positions of al-Nusra Front militants in Syria, resulting in the death of a dozen terrorists.
Some 12 al-Nusra terrorists were killed in the clashes that erupted after ISIL militants attacked al-Nusra positions in the village of Hosh Hamad in al-Lajat in Dara’a.
The Syrian Army’s recent victories across the country have intensified differences among the the militants.
Earlier reports said the Ahrar al-Sham Emir and Shura Council member was killed by unidentified gunmen in the Syrian Province of Homs.
Abu Rateb Al-Homsi, a member of Ahrar al-Sham Shura Council and Homs Emir was killed in Syria on Tuesday.

Ahrar al-Sham’ leaders have lost three senior commanders as a result of infightings in recent weeks, intelligence sources said Sunday.
“Mohammad Abu Yihiya, one of the leaders of Ahrar al-Sham, and Abu Tamim another commander of the terrorist group in Jarjanaz town in Idlib province have been killed as a result of infightings,” the sources said.
Meantime, Takfiri terrorists previously acknowledged that the military commander of Ahrar al-Sham Abdul-Qader al-Dabaan was killed.
