21. The "rebellion" led by al Qaeda's affilitate, the one led by Islamic State, or some other one?

The anti-Islamic State insurgents holding Idlib province are not some sort of democratic movement. They include the successors of Nusra, the al Qaeda affiliate in Syria. I think it is notable that religious minorities have fled areas controlled by these forces - not just to leave the country, also to flee to areas controlled by the Syrian state. Things are not so black and white.
