A brainwashed child soldier stands in front of the Al-Qaeda flag which has written on it جبهة النصرة 'Jabhat Al-Nusra', which is one of the well known Al-Qaeda affiliates in Syria. He is asked if he is from the 'Free Syrian Army', and he affirms. The adult cameraman states that they are the 'Free Syrian Army'. This is damning news for those who suggested that Jabhat Al-Nusra has nothing to do with the 'Free Syrian Army'. Part of the reason why some find it desirable to claim a divide between the 'Free Syrian Army' and Al-Qaeda stems from the fact that weapons and money sent to the 'Free Syrian Army' are in fact in the hands of Al-Qaeda. Jabhat Al-Nusra is not the only faction affiliated to Al-Qaeda. Other notable 'Free Syrian Army' factions include Kataeb Ahrar Al-Sham and Al-Faruq Brigade. Filmed on July 23rd 2012.
