Worn down by war in Syria, many people appear to be turning against the main opposition rebel force.

Unhappy about the soaring cost of basic items, they worry that the Free Syrian Army (FSA) is profiting from the violence.

Many in Aleppo are blaming the FSA for not providing basic services and for not subsidising the price of basic commodities.

The FSA acknowledges that some in their ranks have been profiteering from the war. They say they are fighting corruption within but they blame the government for the people's misery.

In an exclusive report, Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reports from Aleppo.
