This video takes you into Aleppo, Syria, alongside some of the rebel fighters (in this case, the Jaish al-Mujahideen) that are fighting both Daesh and the al-Assad regime. The fighters focus on teaching their children how to fight because they are the next generation, and will be prepared to continue the fight against the current enemy, or the next, after their parents have fallen. “If they don’t know how to use weapons, then they are considered uneducated,” one fighter says. Although most have fled the area, these rebels pride themselves for making the decision to live with their families on the front line, stating, “We live together and we will die together.”
