Roar Camps – Ahrar al-Sham camps in the southern sector

The four minute video below shows training of insurgents in elements of urban combat along with the obligatory jumping through fire and smashing concrete blocks with bare hands.

One aspect of the video is the stylised marching which has been adopted. It seems more of a cross between a ‘goose-step’ and a type of North Korean jog.

Efforts to find a similar type of march or influence have been unsuccessful, although it does resemble the black clad members of Iraq’s ‘elite guard’ Hussein had propagated.
