Ten Islamic State members executed by rival jihadists in northwest Syria

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Ten members of Islamic State were summarily executed in Syria’s Idlib province on Saturday by Tahrir al-Sham, according to Ebaa News Agency, a news outlet that supports the rival jihadist alliance.

Ebaa said the executions were in response to an Islamic State suicide bomb attack at a restaurant in Idlib a day earlier.

Although Islamic State and the groups that make up Tahrir al-Sham, including al Qaeda’s former affiliate the Nusra Front, subscribe to hardline jihadist ideology, they have opposed each other for years.

Islamic State has lost virtually all its territory to the Syrian army, backed by Russia, Iran and Shi’ite Muslim militias, and a rival campaign by Kurdish and Arab groups in the north supported by the United States.
