The jihadist al-Nusra Front, also known as Jabhat al-Nusra, has seized bases and weapons from another rebel group in fighting in northwestern Syria, activists say.
The opposition Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights director Rami Abdulrahman said the al-Nusra Front had also detained dozens of members of the 13th Division rebel group, one of the factions that has received foreign military aid, capturing US-made anti-tank missiles.
The 13th Division, which is led by the prominent rebel commander Ahmed al-Seoud and fights under the banner of the Free Syrian Army, said on Twitter that al-Nusra Front fighters attacked its bases and seized weapons, but gave no further details.
The al-Nusra Front accused the rebel fighters of launching surprise attacks on its own bases in the town of Maarat al-Numan in Idlib province in northwest Syria.
It said some al-Nusra fighters had been captured.
The clashes came two weeks into a cessation of hostilities in Syria and on the eve of peace talks in Geneva between President Bashar al-Assad's government and the opposition.
The halt in fighting, agreed by government forces, rebel groups and their international backers, excludes the al-Nusra Front and Islamic State militants.
Al-Nusra Front fighters have often taken part in offensives alongside other rebel groups against Assad's troops. But they have also fought fellow rebels for territory, defeating groups such as the foreign-backed Syria Revolutionaries Front and the Hazzm group last year.
