Amid the fog of war, the Free Syrian Army is forced to fight both the Assad regime and rebels linked with Al Qaeda.

As time goes on, it has become clear that the conflict in Syria is not clear cut. In this interview, Becky speaks with Adnan Hadad, a Syrian Activist on the Turkish border as well as Louay Almokdad, the political and media coordinator for the Free Syrian Army.

Almokdad makes a fierce statement that the Free Syrian Army has been put in a position where they have to fight the regime and fight terrorist factions such as Al Qaeda and Hezbollah despite pleas for help from Western powers.

Watch this CNN exclusive which proves that when it comes to Syria, there is much more than meets the eye.
