Foreign terrorists leading moderate opposition in Aleppo City. Gambling in Casablanca! UPDATED 4:00 AM

Oh heck, is YouTube picking on SouthFront again? A video that is the centerpiece of the discussion in this post, which is about a SouthFront post, has been removed by YouTube "...for violating YouTube's Terms of Service."  Well you'll just have to use your imagination. 


What I want to know is where they got those military-issue helmuts worn by several of the fighters. They wouldn't have been caputured from the Iranians or Syrian troops and certainly not from Hezbollah or any of the pro-Syrian government militias. Bought off the shelf at some weapons bazaar on the Silk Road and painted to hide their provenance?  If not that, what?

Here's a still from the video showing one of the helmuts; there are better views of them in the video. SouthFront added the caption. (I have no idea what a GoPro is):

A Katibat al-Tawhid wal-Jihad terrorist with an AK, MGL and a helmet with GoPro during the Ramouseh Artillery Base offensive:

Also I found noteworthy, but perhaps only because this is the first jihadi propaganda video I've watched, is the glamourous treatment of the fighters, replete with catchy song. Lights, Camera,  Action!

The Katibat al-Tawhid wal-Jihad terrorist group released a new video that shows it leading the attack on the Ramouseh Artillery Base during the cenet offensive in southwestern Aleppo. The video allows to suggest that Katibat al-Tawhid wal-Jihad among other Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (formerly Jabhat Al Nura) units was a major part of the so-called “opposition offensive.”
Katibat al-Tawhid wal-Jihad (KTJ), is a predominately Uzbek group that has fought in many battles across northwestern Syria. KTJ is allied with Jabhat Al Nusra and has participated in numerous battles, supporting the Syrian Al Qaeda branch.
Now, KTJ is deployed in southwestern Aleppo in order to participate in the Jaish al-Fatah offensive in the area.
Let’s summarize:
  • Katibat al-Tawhid wal-Jihad is directly linked with Al Qaeda and allied with the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham terrorist group;
  • The video uses ISIS nasheeds (a work of vocal music that is either sung a cappella or accompanied by percussion instruments such as the daf);
  • The video clearly depicts that the terrorist organizations was a leading force of the Jaish al-Fatah operation room’s offensive in southwestern Aleppo. Western media outlets call Jaish al-Fatah “opposition’ and ‘moderate rebels.’
