The main aim of the present paper is to establish the existence of a phase transition for the quantum Ising model with competing XY interactions within the quantum Markov chain (QMC) scheme. In this scheme, we employ the $C^*$-algebraic approach to the phase transition problem. Note that these kinde of models do not have one-dimensional analogues, i.e. the considered model persists only on trees. It turns out that if the Ising part interactions vanish then the model with only competing XY -interactions on the Cayley tree of order two does not have a phase transition. By phase transition we mean the existence of two distinct QMC which are not quasi-equivalent and their supports do not overlap. Moreover, it is also shown that the QMC associated with the model have clustering property which implies that the von Neumann algebras corresponding to the states are factors.
