Combattenti appartenenti a diverse brigate ribelli siriane hanno circondato ed occupato la sede dello Stato Islamico dell’Iraq e della Grande Siria nella principale città settentrionale di Aleppo.
“Fighters from several Islamist rebel brigades took control of the children’s hospital in the Qadi Askar district, which is the headquarters of the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria in the city,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The Observatory said it was unclear what had happened to “hundreds” of ISIS fighters who had been inside the headquarters.
The rebels freed dozens of people who were being held prisoner in the ISIS headquarters, it added, citing initial reports.
ISIS has been fighting a coalition of moderate and Islamist rebels angered by a spate of abuses by the jihadists, who have been accused of kidnapping and killing civilians and rival rebels.
Late Tuesday, an ISIS spokesman said the group would “crush” opposition fighters and warned that it considered members of the opposition National Coalition and the military command of the Free Syrian Army to be “legitimate targets.”
