This move is followed by heated debate amongst the resistance  factions and blocs of the Syrian revolution, and even in the corridors of " Jabhat Fath al-Sham”  itself, where  it is argued  about the depth of such a decision, whether it is just a tactical move, or that the front  has realized a real need to make changes to ensure the safety of its components in the first place , and secondly for the areas controlled by the civilian residents, which necessarily requires an intellectual shifts also in addition to the regulatory.
