In a newly released video, Jaish al-Sunna boasts dozens of child soldiers at an undisclosed training camp. The Islamist group was originally part of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) but later joined Jaish al-Fateh (Army of Conquest).

Although the vast majority of rebel fighters are adult men, several cases of child militants among rebel ranks in Syria have emerged in recent years.
According to a report released by UNICEF in 2015, fighters as young as seven years old have been admitted in Syrian rebel groups.
Jaish al-Sunna operates in the governorates of Aleppo, Hama, Homs and Idlib and represents one of many Islamist militias opposed to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
