FNA correspondent in Northern Syria reported the FSA armed rebels clashed with Al-Nusra terrorists over the control of Village 47 in the Northeastern al-Hasakah province and eventually pushed them back and regained control of the village.“Fierce clashes first erupted between the Al-Nusra militants and the FSA's Ahrar Abdan Battalion over the control of a grain silo in Village 47 in the Southern parts of Reef Al-Hasakah,” a local source told FNA on Tuesday.In similar clashes on Monday, tens of militants were killed and dozens more injured during fire exchanges between the Al-Qaeda and FSA in Deir Ezzur province in Eastern Syria.After more than two years of fighting side-by-side and leading one of the bloodiest conflicts in the recent history of Middle-East, FSA and al-Qaeda affiliated groups have been making some moves against each other following reports of West’s alleged concerns over sending more arms to Syria and possibility of them falling into the hands of terrorists.Analysts say West’s pressures for opening a way to send arms to militants in Syria and not the terrorists is actually differentiating the anti-Syria armed groups to “good terrorists” and “bad terrorists”.Militants in Syria have been committing numerous war crimes against people and Syrian army soldiers throughout the country during their bloody war.On Friday, sources said the number of antigovernment combat factions has reached 1750, including the FSA, "State of Iraq and Levant", and other groups working for different agendas.However, the most prominent differences lie between the FSA and the "State of Sham and Iraq", where media sources reported that the latter killed Abu Obeida Al-Binshi, one of the FSA commanders, the Islam Times reported."The assassination took place after the "State of Iraq and Levant" had taken a number of Malaysians, Syrians and Turks relief workers as hostages," the sources said."Following the abduction, a number of the FSA brigades moved in an attempt to release prisoners, which led to clashes between the two opposition groups, and left Abu Obeida Al-Binshi killed," they elaborated furtherEarlier, a media source in the FSA described the "State of Iraq and Levant" as the movement which turned into a cruel rebel group."This organization kills all dissidents without exception, chasing and assassinating them in the areas of Ghota and Damascus western countryside," the media source said.Such incidents were being repeated in Syria during the recent period, signaling a growing tension between the militant groups active under the FSA and the so-called 'Jihadi' groups, mainly composed of non-Syrian militants.
