As fighting rages in the streets of Syria, FRONTLINE journeys to the heart of the insurgency, where rebel groups are waging a full-scale assault on the forces of President Bashar al Assad. Within "liberated zones", the rebels not only fight the Syrian Army, but struggle against each other in a bitter rivalry between secular and Islamist fighters.
