News   /   Field Reports

Opposition militants announced a new military campaign in the northern Syrian governorate of Aleppo today.

The so called Islamic Front, joined forces with al-Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda's franchise in Syria, to launch an assault dubbed "The promise of truth approaches", a reference to a Quranic verse about Judgment Day.

Syrian Army have been making gains on militant-held parts of Syria's second city, advances which many opposition sources blame on weeks of militant infighting that has killed over 2,300 combatants.

The Islamic Front and some of its militant allies are trying to oust an Al-Qaeda splinter group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, with whom they have ideological and territorial disputes.
