ISIL inks truce with Syria rebel brigade

World Bulletin / News Desk

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has signed a truce deal in Syria with an Islamist rebel brigade.

The deal signed Tuesday between ISIL and Suqour al-Sham was posted online on Wednesday, and also reported by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

It calls for "an immediate halt to fighting between the sides and no assault by either side on the other in any way". It also urges that any disagreements between the groups be referred to an Islamic court.

ISIL members have been trying to occupy oil rich and strategic border regions in Syria. ISIL, after occupying Rakka, Halab and Idlib provinces which had been under the control of the Syrian opposition, has been endeavoring to gain ground in regions close to Turkish border. 

ISIL separated from the Jabhat-un-Nusra group last year. Since then it has been fighting against Syrian opposition under the leadership of a man called Abu Bakir al-Baghdadi.
