FRONTLINE: Syria's Second Front
Syria's Second Front - FRONTLINE correspondent and Syrian native Muhammad Ali is one of only a few reporters to make it in and out of Syria's dangerous northern battle zone in recent months. In Syria's Second Front, Ali uncovers firsthand how three years into civil war, the revolution has devolved into a fight between rebels and extremist factions claiming allegiance to Al Qaeda. Ali lives and films with rebels as they try to unify against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a radical and notoriously brutal group known as that has gained a foothold in the country, and embark on a battle to take back an ISIS-controlled town.
