Fierce fighting breaks out between major rival insurgent groups in Syria.
Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant engaged in heavy clashes with members of the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front. The militant infighting took place in the Deir al-Zour countryside in eastern Syria. ISIL insurgents attacked the al-Nusra Front's regional headquarter, killing several of its members. Following the clashes, another armed group linked to al-Nusra attacked ISIL insurgents in the Sheikh Othman village, and killed several of them in response.
