DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:25 P.M.) – Amateur footage surfaced on Thursday from the rebel-held countryside of northeastern Aleppo where a local man was accused by Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants of being a thief after which he was tortured for his alleged crimes.

The young man, whom appeared to have been shot in his leg, was tied to the back of a Toyota truck and dragged several hundred meters along the ground, causing excruciating pain judging by his calls for help.

Viewer discretion is advised due to the graphic nature of the video:

The militants, some of whom whore the Turkish flag on their uniforms, are believed to be part of a Turkmen-led FSA faction which enjoys backing from Ankara and fought alongside the Turkish Armed Forces during their Euphrates Shield offensive in 2016.

The fate of the alleged thief remains unbeknownst to Al-Masdar News.

Just wondering what he could have stolen to get such a punishment? What is there to steal? Thank God the video did not show his hand being chopped off. Daesh stole for last 3 – 4 years plenty of Oil & Gas and so many priceless Artifacts and sold it to the black market, FSA couldn’t do anything to them. Turkey is supporting these FSA without realizing that this will haunt them too soon when their own country will be broken up soon by US the same way once US engages them against Turkey. It is time to break up… Read more »
