More than 1,000 people have died in two weeks of fighting between al Qaeda-linked militants in Syria and rival rebels, an activist group said on Thursday, by far the bloodiest internecine violence since the revolt began.The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a pro-opposition monitoring group, said 1,069 people had been killed in clashes and executions since fighting between the al Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) and rival rebel forces erupted at the start of this month.Another 608 of them were fighters from the Islamist rebel groups and other less ideological rebel groups that have joined forces to confront ISIS.ISIS fighters have managed to recapture much of the northern province of Raqqa and other parts of Aleppo province which they lost in the initial rebel assault.
