19. Islamic State and the "rebels" were largely allies at first.

This may refer to the prisoner release you're referring to: https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/syrias-assad-moves-to-allay-fury-after-security-forces-fire-on-protesters/2011/03/26/AFFoZDdB_story.html?utm_term=.90fca6548bb7

The armed forces of the Syrian state and allied groups lost many lives at the hands of Islamic State.

The non-Nusra, non-Islamist State insurgents made their bed by tactically aligning themselves with the radicals.
