Amira Ar’our: I am First Lieutenant Amira Ar’our from the northern recruitment and mobilization area. I hereby announce my defection from Assad’s criminal gangs.

I am joining the ranks of the heroic people and its blessed revolution against the murderous oppressors. This is because these gangs have committed the most abominable crimes against defenseless civilians. I hereby announce the formation of the FSA Blessed Aqsa Brigade. May Allah grant us success.

FSA fighters: Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar.
