Syrian civil war

The Syria Revolutionaries Front is an alliance formed in December 2013 by 14 Free Syrian Army (FSA) brigades as a response to the Islamist Islamic Front merger.[5] The name of the group has also been translated as the Syrian Rebel Front.[1] Following various clashes, the Islamic Front and the Syrian Revolutionaries Front have agreed to reconcile.[6] The coalition is spearheaded by Jamal Maarouf, head of the Syria Martyrs Brigade, a member of the SRF based in Jabal al-Zawiya, Idlib.[7] The group has supported the Geneva II Middle East peace conference that is aimed at resolving the Syrian civil war.[7]
