In September, a now widely shared video emerged of Free Syrian Army (FSA) soldiers calling US soldiers “pigs” and other names as they left the village of al-Rai, north of Aleppo. And it appears that a similar incident just happened again. A new video being shared on social media shows what appears to be US forces leaving a Syrian town as a rebel soldier calls them “pigs”.


The video is being shared on Twitter, and, like the al-Rai incident, claims to be from northern Syria. It also appeared on the subreddit r/syriancivilwar.

Al Bawaba was unable to immediately verify the authenticity video.

The US backs several rebel groups throughout Syria, including parts of the FSA. However, tensions exist over US support for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) –whose People Protection Units (YPG) group has clashed with rebel groups – and other issues.
