"The fight to oust Isis, a virulent and ultra-fundamental jihadist group, was a defining three months in the battle for Aleppo, but for the wrong reasons, as rebel groups who led the fight have discovered. "We lost 550 men," said a senior member of the Liwa al-Tawheed, the largest opposition group in the Islamic Front, one of two rebel military blocs in northern Syria. "The Islamic Front lost 2,500. We did that because we needed to. They did not represent us. And we were told that if we kicked them out it would be easier for others to help us. Well, we did that, and look at things now.""
