Conflict Detail Descriptions
Syria (inter-opposition rivalry):
The limited war over resources, subnational predominance, and the orientation of the political system between the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and various Islamist groups and coalitions, such as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), and the So Be Steadfast Operations Room (SBS) de-escalated to a violent crisis. While the groups fought jointly against the Syrian government and the so-called Islamic State (IS) on several occasions, tensions between Islamist and moderate groups as well as among dif- ferent Islamist militias persisted [!
