Islamic Alliance Signatories

by Isabel Nassief

The graph below, made with Palantir, represents the eleven rebel brigades that signed the Islamic alliance document released September 24 near Aleppo. It also shows their existing alliances, including all of the major blocs in Syria (the FSA, the Syrian Islamic Front (SIF), and the al-Qaeda affiliates). At this time it remains unclear whether the FSA brigades that signed on to this alliance intend to maintain their FSA ties or break with the coalition completely.
