Abu Mohammed al-Goulani, al-Nusra Front's leader in Syria, said that Riyadh conference was part of a "conspiracy" to revive Assad's regime. Many Syrians started a campaign on social media pages sharply condemning al-Golani’s speech as he denied the existence of Free Syrian army (FSA). Syrians also published photos on social media of FSA fighters praising their sacrifices and courage defending Syrians against Assad.
