Syrian opposition aims to restore order

Rebel group provides public services in Latakia province in efforts to fill state power vacuum.

    The war in Syria has led to a break down of state institutions and communal services.

    In an attempt to restore law and order, opposition groups are trying to provide public services across the country.

    Al Jazeera's Casey Kauffman reports from Latakia province, where he met a rebel group says they are trying to "give back people their rights".
