At the end of March, Syrian rebel and jihadi groups achieved military victories against regime forces and their allies in the south and the northwest, in Deraa and Idlib.The Army of Conquest is an alliance of seven rebel groups, of which Nusra is just one component.Idlib and the surrounding areas have been pounded heavily by regime airstrikes ever since government forces left at the end of March, meaning that the rebels could end up presiding over a city emptied of many of its residents.At the other end of the country, the rebels' sudden seizure of two areas in Deraa province produced a similar controversy over what happens when regime forces vacate a given area.Photographs of a man ripping the "rebel" or independence flag, the symbol of the uprising, quickly circulated.The SRGC accused the party of working against the uprising "from day one".However, some rebel groups in Aleppo have spoken out forcefully against the campaign against the independence flag.
