BEIRUT: Syrian activists say that fighters belonging to rival Islamic rebel groups are battling each other in the north and at least 12 have died.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says members of the al-Qaida linked Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria and another Islamic group clashed in the town of Maskaneh in the northern Aleppo province. Fighting started Tuesday morning after ISIS members detained a man to try him in an Islamic court they set up after driving President Bashar Assad's forces from the area.

Over the past year, the ISIS has become one of the most influential groups on the opposition's side in the country's nearly three-year-old conflict. The infighting has weakening the battle to oust Assad.
