“The conflict in Syria remains highly fluid, despite recent gains claimed by opposition forces and extremist groups,” a U.S. intelligence official with direct knowledge of the situation in Syria told CNN, noting that a number of factors were at play.

He added, “The regime’s apparent lack of success in recent offensives in southern Syria suggest moderate opposition forces may be more coherent — even if they are not yet able to compete directly with extremist elements.”

He pointed to three “emerging blocs of the opposition forces” — ISIS, other extremists and moderates — “that collectively pose a more direct threat to Assad compared to last year.”
