Three common problems in the liberated territories in Syria

Despite the importance of liberation of territories by the revolutionary forces and capturing it from Syrian Government forces and militia, it became clear that this stage do not represent all the revolutionary work, because it must include administrating and securing needs for the liberated territories.

Military institution for liberation and Civilian institution for administration

Revolutionary factions are making a great effort combating the Syrian government forces throughout Syria, however the revolutionary fighters who are the primary military force are being sent to new battlefronts leaving the liberated territories. The Revolutionary factions should agree and help establish a shared civil and administrative councils to rule the liberated territories and at the same to defend it. The tasks of these councils is to improve the living conditions for the people and to administrate the liberated territories like recording civil records, operating the civil defence or white hats, operating and monitoring the important facilities like infrastructure, furnaces, energy plants and health services.

Weak Security System

Many of the liberated territories have weak security systems which needs to be improved, Syrian government and Islamic State have installed secret cells working independently to destabilize the liberated territories. Revolutionary factions must work together and clean any new territory from secrets cells which could be very dangerous for security and stability, the secret cells can carry out assassinations of revolutionary commanders, plant bombs in public facilities like hospitals and military bases and spy for Syrian government and Islamic State.

Monopoly

Despite you find many joint military operation rooms in many revolutionary controlled territories but there is absence of on judicial, civilian and security institutions between the Revolutionary factions. This is due to the rivalry and disagreements between Revolutionary factions instead of working together for the success of the Syrian revolution.

In the liberated territories there are many judicial institution that are run by different revolutionary and non-revolutionary factions like there is Dar al-Qada [House of Judiciary] which is run by Nusra Front, Islamic Judicial institution which is run by Ahrar Sham [Islamic Front] and other revolutionary factions. When there is absence of security institutions that is responsible for following up civil and criminal offenses, sometimes one of the revolutionary faction is forced to run it in order to make justice and stability which puts it in direct clash with other revolutionary factions or civilians.
