“Some 3,300 people have been killed ever since the start of fighting on January 3” between Terrorists of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), on one side, and other Terrorist, on the other, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Wednesday.
The infighting began when militants of the so-called Free Syria Army accused the Takfiri militants of brutalizing people in areas under their control.
The deaths were caused by “car and (other) bomb attacks…and fighting,” said the group, adding that there were 281 civilians among the fatalities, most of which caused by shelling and stray bullets.
Twenty-one civilians were executed by the ISIL at a children’s hospital in the northern city of Aleppo while all of the seven members of a Kurd family were also killed.
Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011. Over 130,000 people have reportedly been killed and millions displaced due to the unrest.
According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies — Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
