Jihadist rebel groups clash in northwest Syria

BEIRUT - Syrian jihadists seen as close to Islamic State battled a rival hard-line Islamist faction on Monday in northwestern Syria, a war monitor and an official with another insurgent group said, in an escalating power struggle.
Jund al-Aqsa and Tahrir al-Sham clashed around Kafr Zeita in the countryside north of Hama, and near Tamaniaa, Khan Sheikhoun and Tal Aaas in southern Idlib Province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor.
An official with a rebel group that fights under the banner of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which was not involved in Monday's confrontations, confirmed the fighting.
