In a video-clip posted on the Internet on December 30, 2014, the Syrian army's Mountain Battalion declared the establishment of a martyrdom-seeking platoon.

Following are excerpts:

Representative of suicide-bomber platoon: In the name of Allah, the Compassionate and Merciful. We, the commandos of the Mountain Battalion, declare, from the peak of Mount Nabi Yunis, the establishment of a martyrdom-seeking platoon. This is our response to all the foreigners who have distorted the religion of Islam, and have defiled the soil of our country.

The language of killing has never been taught on the land of Syria. Our language is the language of defending the country and its master against all those who have sold their souls to Satan and his followers. We are ready to sacrifice our lives so that the banner of Truth will fly high. May the Syrian flag continue to be a beacon to all the free people of the world, and continue to fly over every inch of our beloved Syrian land. Remember us when you celebrate victory.

Suicide-bomber platoon members: Oh Syria, we respond to your call.

Oh Syria, we respond to your call.

Oh Syria, we respond to your call.

Oh Syria, we respond to your call.
