By Sami Zaatari     Feb 2, 2014 in World
Two rebel leaders in Syria have been killed after attacks carried out by the Islamic state of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), in a continuation of the rebel infighting in the north of the country.
One of the rebel commanders that was killed, Adnan Bakour, belonged to the Tawheed Brigade, which is a member of the Islamic Front coalition.
The leader was killed along with 26 others after a suicide bomber from the Al-Qaeda affiliate attacked the group's headquarters in the contested city of Aleppo.
The ISIS also killed a leader from the Suqour al-Sham brigade, with the group also belonging to the Islamic Front coalition.
All out fighting between the Islamic State of Iraq and other Syrian rebel groups broke out last month, with over 1,500 people being reported killed in the fighting.
