A recent YouTube clip presents one of the more bizarre sights to have emerged from the syrian war.
It shows a group of Syrian soldiers in full combat gear, wielding automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades dancing to R&B star Usher’s hit tune “Yeah!”
with a building burning in the background.
Near the end of the video, they stop dancing and break into their version of an often heard battle chant in the Middle East: “With our souls, our blood, we sacrifice for you Bashar!” as black smoke billows from a building in the background.
In a jarring finale, they shoot bursts of automatic gunfire in the air.
The clip filmed in southern Syrian was obtained from Ugarit News
