Syrian armed rebels sidelined in political process

Reuters reports that Syrian major insurgent group Ahrar al-Sham has pulled out of international meetings in Riyadh, upset that post-Assad plans for the country put political collective NCB in charge.

The National Coordination Body for Democratic Change, a coalition of 13 comparatively leftist political parties and activist groups, is considered by much of the world Syria’s most legitimate opposition group.

Ahrar al-Sham, the largest combatant group besides the Free Syrian Army, has called the NCB a front organization for Assad loyalists; the anti-Ba’athist militia wants guarantees of a fresh government and has, for now, walked out of the talks.
