Rebel school in Aleppo with Burqa-Ninjas
 Part of channel(s): Syria (current event)

(11/03/13) Footage from an Ahrar Al Sham run school in Aleppo shows classes full of women in black Burqas, their bodies covered from head to toe in a way never before seen in Syria.

Ahrar Al Sham are one of the strongest insurgent groups in Syria, based in Aleppo and Idlib, their influence is rivalled only by Jabhat Al Nusra (Al Qaeda in Syria). The footage alludes to the fact that the most powerful insurgent groups all adhere to a puritanical and oppressive Saudi form of Islam which denigrates women. This reality of often ignored in the West.
