THE THINGS THEY CARRY
Kachadur Manukian, 25 year old FSA fighter says: “They killed my mother and father, I will kill them with my knife, I wait for that day, this is why I always carry my knife, I will kill them like I would kill a goat…”.
As the fight between the soldiers loyal to the regime and the members of the Free Syrian Army intensifies along the front lines of the besieged city of Aleppo, a selected group of rebel poses in front of the camera and answers one question: “What do you carry?”.They have entered the highly contested area of Ramussen, one of Aleppo’s regime controlled neighborhoods, to fight against a fully equipped Syrian tank battalion. On the first day of their mission, they have lost two men and have had four injuries. Hidden in the basement of a abandoned factory building they wait for resupplies and more fighters.
