Aiman Swade, 31 year old FSA commander says: “I am the leader of these fighters, my radio is what I carry with me all the time, its how I organize and direct operations…besides that I carry my families memories, they all died in Al Bab.”
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.
