BEIRUT (Reuters) - Fighting between insurgent groups east of Damascus killed more than 50 people on Monday, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

The fighting has pitted the Jaish al-Islam group, which is part of the opposition High Negotiations Committee, against rival factions Failaq al-Rahman and the Fustat Army.

The clashes began in late April.
