#1 Free Syrian Army.

The Free Syrian Army traces its origin to early defectors from the Syrian army who refused to shoot unarmed protesters during the Syrian uprising.

Relationship with Islamists

However, some rebels are worried by the extreme beliefs and tactics used by the Islamists.[190][191] The FSA has consistently condemned al-Nusra Front's use of suicide bombs.[190] There is also unease between the Islamists and other rebel groups. In some parts of Syria, "Jihadist and secular rebel groups watch each other's military bases warily, unclasping the safety catches on their guns as they pass".[191] FSA commanders accuse the Islamists of "hijacking a revolution that began as an uprising to demand a democratic system".[191][192] Interviews with the FSA suggest that its top commanders see the Islamists as "a threat to stability post regime change".[192] The leader of a rebel group in Idlib Province said "We are not fighting Bashar al-Assad to go from living in an autocratic to a religious prison".[191] Some members of the FSA believe that, after the Assad government has been overthrown, the next war will be between the FSA and the Islamists.
