Islamist fighters attack Syrian government forces south of Aleppo - Syrian Observatory | Reuters

BEIRUT Islamist insurgents attacked Syrian government forces and gained some ground south of the city of Aleppo on Monday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.

Clashes broke out between government forces and their allies and groups, including the al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front and the Islamist Jund al-Aqsa, after the insurgents attacked near the village of al-Ais in the southern Aleppo countryside, the Britain-based Observatory said.
