A monitoring group said on Sunday, Islamic State militants have withdrawn from areas north of the Syrian city of Homs and have retreated east after coming under attack from rival Islamist fighters. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, citing sources in areas north of Homs, fighters from the group withdrew from a headquarters north of Homs on the orders of their leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The Observatory said, that in late July, the Syrian army recaptured a gas field east of Homs that Islamic State militants had seized earlier that month in a raid killing some 270 soldiers, guards and staff.
