Syrian rebel infighting kills at least 630 in east

BEIRUT - More than 630 people have been killed and at least 130,000 have been displaced in more than a month of rebel infighting in an eastern province near the Iraqi border, Syrian activists said Tuesday. 


The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 39 civilians are among the 634 people killed in Deir el-Zour province since April 30.


The fighting is between Islamic rebel battalions and the al-Qaeda breakaway group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.


The Observatory said Tuesday the tally includes 354 rebel fighters, including many from the al-Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front, and 241 gunmen from the Islamic State. (AP)
