Syrian militants sent reinforcements to fight the Islamic State group in the northern province of Aleppo, where rival factions battled Tuesday near the Turkish border, activists said. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Abu al-Hassan Marea, who is currently in Turkey near the Syrian border, said that the battles raged on the northern edge of Aleppo province. Islamic State fighters captured four villages and a town from al-Qaida’s branch in Syria, the Nusra Front, and its allies over the past days in battles in the area.
