The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) granted thISIL-FSAe Free Syrian Army (FSA) 48 hours to disarm, indicating the wide split among the terrorist groups in Syria.

ISIL has set the 2-day deadline for the Free Syrian Army to yield as the infighting among the different militant groups intensified, Press TV quoted media reports.

The ultimatum was enforced at 8:00 p.m. local time (23:00 GMT) on Thursday.

Clashes among Takfiri militants have increased in recent months.

According to a study conducted by the British institute for defense, IHS Jane's, in September and published by the UK Daily Telegraph last week, nearly half of mercenaries in Syria are hard-line militants.

The study showed that the number of insurgents fighting against the Syrian army is estimated at about 100 thousand gunmen distributed to about a thousand armed band, who came from 83 countries, including all Arab countries except Djibouti.
