The ongoing war between the armed forces is primarily designed to 
control zones of influence in liberated areas and to try to establish 
and impose an ideological hegemony on the population through medieval 
forms of organization, such as « Shariah committees ». The Islamic 
Front, for example, the largest in terms of number, follows the jihadist 
Salafist political thoughts advocated by the reactionary regime in Saudi 
Arabia. For this, we can safely say that – except for a few brigades of 
the FSA, which have been weakened and marginalized in recent months – 
that the real objective of rival groups in conflict with Da3ech is not 
to restore the objectives of the popular revolution to overthrow the 
regime and establish a free and democratic Syria. They are reactionary 
forces, motivated by ideological, military and political rivalries to 
share, if it is not to reach a monopoly of control, of liberated areas.
