A militia supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, called the National Defense Forces (NDF) published a video on Friday that shows its people training in Syria. The training exercise depicts a scenario in which the militia manages to commandeer an IDF post: With dramatic music playing in the background, the soldiers manage to reach the Israeli post, identified by the Israeli flag. After overtaking it, the militia infantry places their own flag and the Hezbollah flag in its stead.
The NDF is a militia established by Assad during the civil war to deal with the weakness of the Syrian army. Only a few weeks ago, this militia claimed that an Israeli drone had assassinated one of its operatives, Yasser a-Sayyid, while he was driving in a car on the road between Khan Arnabeh, on the outskirts of Quneitra, and Damascus.
After the post falls into the militia's hands, one of the commanders praises his soldiers for their performance. "It is very good that you are moving toward the post under a cover of fire. This is an achievement. "
Later, soldiers from the militia are interviewed. They state that they feel good with their training: "The course was very good," says one of them. "We have benefited from the knowledge of our friends, we have received new information and we have formulated a new tactic, a new method, better than what we had in the past." At the end of the video, the soldiers who participated in the exercise yell out, "In the spirit and blood we will redeem you, Bashar" while waving their weapons.
