BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The US-backed Jaysh Osoud al-Sharqiyah mercenary faction, a sub-militia within the Free Syrian Army (FSA) franchise, has released a video showing its fighters engaging forward elements of pro-government forces in Syria’s southwestern Badia region.

The skirmishes depicted in the video are believed to have taken place in central Rif Dimashq Governorate.

The footage shows the US-vetted FSA proxy group engaging pro-government forces with a range of support weapons, including medium machine guns, mortars of both 81 mm and 120 mm caliber and at least one Katyusha-like rocket launcher mounted on a Toyota pickup.

Furthermore, a Toyota pickup armed with a 23 mm ZU-23-2 anti-aircraft gun can be seen attempting to shoot down an warplane belonging to the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF).

The FSA fighters shown in the video appear to belong to a small, highly-mobile battle-group tasked with a shoot-and-scoot mission. The obvious objective of this FSA combat group is to harass forward elements of pro-government forces in the desert and hold open an ever-closing corridor to a large pocket containing more of their comrades further to the west.

Well, the only proxies Israel ever backed were Lebanese ones, I found no traces about others. Ariel Sharon even stated that Israel CREATED Hezbollah to fuck PLO and to oust UNIFIL that fucked with their goal of ousting PLO from south-Lebanon in the 80’s.
It’s exactly what happened, you know…

If you want to know if a group is terrorist or not, just look what vehicle they’re driving. Hassan Jameel in a Saudi Businessman who has sole rights to sell Toyota in the entire Middle-east region. Every vehicle goes through this man..
