Title: FSA Women’s Brigade in Aleppo
Date: 08/03/2014
Location: Saladin Neighborhood, Aleppo

Subject Matter:
With the war in Syria entering its fourth year, the role of women has taken different forms with direct and indirect involvement. In the opposition held Salahedin Neighborhood of Aleppo, Om Muhammad an ex schoolteacher founded an all women’s medical and military brigade called the Our Mother Aisha Brigade. Around ten women who have stayed in the area wit their families work in medical and military assistance to FSA fighters in a neighborhood that is considered to be a front line.

Interviews:

Om Muhammad – Ex Schoolteacher and founding member of Our Mother Aisha Brigade "We reached a point where Jihad was forced upon the young before the old, upon women before men. If Bashar Al Assad killed our men, if God is willing us women will fight. Plus we are sisters of the men and the country and the land are for the women as much as they are for the men. We are all ex teachers and come from an educated class, we worked in medical assistance and our brigade was founded by educated women in order to assist the men in the battle and to break ideas that claim that women left behind by their men to go to war might succumb into temptation. Last thing we think about are our homes, cause the country is more important then our homes. My children go to school in the morning and to the mosque for Koranic studies in the afternoon, my husband just like me is a jihadist  and most of the women in the brigade are wives of mujaheedin and if they are single or widowed, their brothers and fathers are surely fighters. We are staying here and our struggle continues. If God is willing we will topple the regime. We are going to keep fighting because our revolution needs another revolution, we will keep fighting until our revolution is purged. We're going to take part and hand in hand rebuild our country if God is willing"

Om Yassin – Ex Schoolteacher and current member of Our Mother Aisha Brigade
"We all used to be schoolteachers, now we became mujahideen. I am a fighter and at home I am a wife, a mother, a sister. After the revolution for which we are doing our duties, if God is willing we will go back to being mothers, sisters and wives. Some of us work as nurses and the medical center and others work on the front lines. It's true we are women but we do the men's work, we keep morals high, we help them and fulfill tasks that were left empty by men."

Video shot on February 1, 2014 in Eastern Ghouta, Syria.

This video shows the building of a manual pump to get water out of a 7 meter deep well. The besieged area of Eastern Ghouta has been suffering from lack of water, due to the lack of electricity, which powers the water pumps.

Video can be viewed here http://www.transterramedia.com/media/31603

Shot List:

-Various shots of Eastern Gouta showing people moving barrels and filling them with water.

-Interviews with the inhabitants of Eastern Gouta talking about their misery.

-Various shots of the manual water pump and the way it operates .

Transcription:

Abu Alaa:
We don’t have water. We want to wash ourselves so we can pray, do laundry, and there’s no water. We’ve been waiting for hours to get 10 liters of water, and we can’t even get our hands on it.

Abu Jamal:
I’ve been here since 8:30, standing in line. We get pushed back and forth, we just need a barrel of water, so we can wash ourselves, take a shower. Look at us, check out my neck, it's dirty, we don’t have water to shower, how are we going to clean ourselves?

Abu Ali:
There’s no water in the main pipe so we have to carry barrels to the nearest water tap and fill them up. We need to go through this mission about 2-3 times per day to fulfill our water need.

Abu Saleh:
Here in the eastern Gouta we are suffering from the lack of water, or to be more accurate, we have water but we don’t have any gas, fuel or even electricity. We needed to pump the water from the wells so we invented a manual device that includes an engine and a stepper that pumps out water when you press it. We can pump out water from a well that is 7 meters deep.

THE SOUND OF THE TIGRIS

October 2013

Iraq, Tigris river from Al-Kut to Basra

The Tigris River Flotilla - A small group of researchers decided to create a flotilla, ten years after the American occupation, floating on the Tigris from the South of Baghdad (Al-Kut) to the confluence of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in the marshes near Basra. The goal is: protect the ecosystem of the rivers, check the status of water pollution, raise the awareness of the Iraq and Turkish governments of the importance of this millennial wealth for Iraqi citizens. Mesopotamia and especially the Iraqi marshlands are drying up, while undermining fishing, farming and the health of local populations. “The sound of the Tigris” is the diary of the first journey of this unique and fascinating project.

Damascus

Video recorded on January 15, 2014 showing tunnels dug by the Free Syrian Army in the area of the Southern Highway in Damascus. The tunnels are used by the FSA to connect the villages of Qaboun, Barzeh, Zamalka and Jobar, move FSA fighters into Damascus and avoid positions controlled by Assad forces.
The FSA also tunnels under regime positions where they plant explosives to blow them up. The video shows fighters wiring explosives.
The video also shows FSA fighters monitoring surveillance cameras they placed for security and to watch Syrian Army movements.
The Southern Highway is a major strategic point which separates FSA and Assad forces. It is an important link among Damascus southern suburbs and it links the Damascus-Homs highway with the Damascus-Daraa route. And it is a key supply route for the Syrian Army.
The FSA has been targeting Syrian Army military vehicles traveling on the Southern Highway from Damascus to the Syrian Air Force Intelligence headquarters in Harasta.
The FSA has blocked the highway since last year at a number of locations near the communities of Arbin, Zamalka, Jobar and Ein Tarma.

Sound bite: Souhail Tlas, Commander of Faihaa Brigade

"The Southern highway is the main way to enter Damascus from the towns of Kabbas, Mliha, Harasta and to the road to Damascus Airport. The highway is indeed a key supply route used by the regime as an alternate way to move tanks and military vehicles in order not to through the center of Damascus."

Sound bit: Souhail Tlas, Commander of Faihaa Brigade

"The Southern highway is extremely important because it is the main link between Daraa and Homs. The regime has been trying to take control over the highway for months but thanks to God he has never been able to do it because the whole area is completely linked and controlled by the FSA fighters."

Sound bite: Abu Samir, Field Commander of Moujahidin Brigade

"We dug this tunnel because it is hard to break into the regime military base, which is above us right now. It is quite hard because there is a wooded area that separates us so we dug this tunnel under the wooded area towards the military base. And now we will put explosives and blow up the building with all the soldiers and commanders inside."

Sound bite: Souhail Tlas, Commander of Faihaa Brigade

"We are now standing in front of a tunnel that reaches the entrance of Damascus. The FSA fighters have dug it in order to surround the militia of Hezbollah and regime forces. This is one of many tunnels that we have dug at the frontlines so no Shabiha and regime soldiers can escape from the FSA."

Sound bite: Obada, FSA Fighter

"We are always at the frontlines watching the regime soldiers. We are using these cameras. We are making it easier for FSA fighters to defeat any regime forces attack."

So; it is a very important step, but like I said to the refugees themselves; this is the first step, this is a step that has been made possible by the agreements of the parties to their duty, which is to protect civilians and to spare them the consequences of war, but much more needed to be done, still a few poeple are coming, we need to reach out to them, we need to go to them not to people to come to us.

February 24, 2014
Location: Deir Ez Zour

Storyline: A group of children from Al Hamidiya neighborhood of Deir Ez Zour play war games in their former school, which was damaged during heavy fighting. Influenced by the fighters of the Free Syrian Army in Deir Ez Zour, the children organized themselves into make believe rebel brigades and pretend to fight each other. They use toy weapons made from wood lying around the neighborhood.

One of the children, known as 'The Genie' to the children of the neighborhood, is a 16 year old who dreams to become a doctor in order to help people who are ill or injured. His situation is similar to many of the children who are out receiving any education because of the war. After the destruction of most schools in the area and the fast escape of most teachers who chose to leave the city out of fear, there is little left for children to do with their time.

The name of our battalion is the Alhamidiah Martyrs Battalion. They were shooting at us and sending explosions our way. We saw the other battalions and we decided to create our own. We hit the dogs of Al Assad. When the war started, we forgot our toys; but now we remember, and we resumed playing. This is my weapon. It is a piece of wood and I glued it to a metal rod. I used a bicycle tire. I put a little rock here and I shoot it. I am a fighter, and I want to fight the FSA.
All the schools have been shelled and bombed, as you can see. We are unable to study here. We study in people’s homes; they put some seats and got some books to teach us.
If I cant read arabic, I cannot read anything else.
You bring the elastic band to the back and you stick it in the small clamp. You get a rock, and you shoot it out.

6:34 – 8:45 I am 'The Genie', a fighter in Alhamidiyah. I am in the 9th grade and I am 16 years old. This is our battalion here. Bashar bombs us everyday. All of this is because of Bashar, all of it. Everything shoots at us, from bombs, to missiles.. etc. We are not scared. We even endured an air strike. We came here, we wanted to fight, so we created this battalion. We are having fun, so we made these weapons and passed them along the battalion. We fight here in the neighborhood. Look what they did to the school, it is destroyed. We play in here.
I want to be a doctor when I grow up, to help out these people; the injured.

Name – Profession: Three soldiers of the battalion

11:25 – 12:30 We are part of the Alhaidiah Battalion. Bashar Al Assad and his dogs shot and bombed Alhamidiah. Just today we were hit by a bomb from the street next to us; killed two people and injured one. We want to grow up, now we are just playing.
We won’t study and we do not want an education, until the regime fails.

He was working in construction before the revolution when he became the commander of Om Al Qura Brigade in Al Jabeela neighborhood that is considered one of the regional symbols in the uprising against government forces.

Interviews

Abou Kazem- commander of Om Al Qura Brigade in Deir Al Zour :
"In the name of god, I am the Mojahed (fighter) Abou AlKazem, the military leader of the brigade “Om Alkora” in AlJibali neighborhood of Deir Ezzor.  We have been here for a year.  The fighting started in different ways; one of them is with the local mortars of different sizes. Before the revolution, I used to have simple jobs such as construction. I was also an athlete and won the Shot Put local competition in Deir Ezzor in the first year, as for the second year, I won the Shot Put championship of the Syrian Republic.
Then came the blessed revolution and took me, forcefully or unintentionally, from throwing iron balls to throwing bombs in my country and homeland. We ask of god to appreciate us for these deeds.
If god wishes, after this blessed revolution will triumph over the tyrant, I will go back to my original work domain of construction. And with the will of god, we will rebuild this country after Bashar and his subordinates destructed it, and we will reconstruct the infrastructure and people’s hearts, which are full of love and obedience for god. We will build it internally and externally if god wills."

No name mentioned-FSA fighter in Om Al Qura Brigade in Deir Al Zour :
"In the name of god, we assigned him to throw mortars because he has physical strength as a Shot Put athlete and can throw the mortars to a farther distance.  He is of help to us for his expertise. We thank him for this service because he is a national champion and a battle champion too."

Video shot on March 21, 2014 in Arsal, Lebanon
Syrian government troops took control of the strategic town of Yabroud near the border with Lebanon, on March 16, 2014. With nowhere else to flee, hundreds of Syrian rebel fighters retreated to the Lebanese border town of Arsal.

This video shows wounded Syrian opposition fighters receiving medical treatment in a hospital in Arsal. They talk about the fighting in Yabroud.
Interviews:
Fighter 1: I was in Yabroud, and I was injured by the helicopter. It was shooting and I got injured.
Fighter 2: I was injured at the front, in the battle. We were fighting and throwing bombs at one another while we were ten meters away from each other and the bomb hit us. I got injured while we were resisting them. My leg and my arm wre amputated while another bomb hit again and injured me one more time. They’re destroying our houses and dropping bombs on us and fighting us with artillery weapons and guns, slaughtering our children. This horrible system doesn’t have mercy for children or humans or nature or anything, criminals.
Abu Abdo Al Homsi -FSA fighter in Fjr Al Islam: I belong to the troop of Fajr Al Islam. I was fighting on the Yabroud front, Erbeen specifically. There are many types of weapons they used against us such as the “Cornet Rockets” that has a range of 7 kilometers. What is special about this rocket is that it has sensors that allow it to track the machinery wherever it goes. Another kind is the Thermobaric Weapons. It’s a kind of explosive that uses the oxygen in the surrounding and then explodes taking the whole house down.
Hezbollah was there, mostly “Badr” Troop, and also the troop of Abu Al Fadel Al Abbas which belongs to Iraq. I don’t know what to tell you. There was betrayal from many troops and the amount of weaponry was huge. Some people benefited from the death and suffering of the men you’ve seen. I’m a fighter and always will be, wherever I am I will always hold the banner of ‘’La Ilah Ella Allah, Mohammad Rasool Allah’’.

Syrians Use Trash As Source of Altern...
By Transterra Editor
09 Apr 2014

Farmers in rebel-controlled Douma, northeast of Damascus, are finding creative ways to run their irrigation machines in lieu of a steady supply of gas. They, along with other locals, are now using trash and animal remains to extract methane gas from waste as a source of alternative energy.

This video shows the specific process of making this gas, from filling a hole in the ground with the waste, adding water, and covering it after with plastic bags. They then wait for the methane gas to be produced. Using tubes, they transport the gas into tanks and reservoirs.

Transcription:

Adnan Mbayyed - Agriculture Engineer
Currently, we found an alternative solution for producing energy by using gas holes in specific measurements, which depend on what we want to use it for. The hole is approximately 3-4 meters wide, and 75 cm. deep. Cow feces and some plants and grass are put in the hole and tightly covered with plastic. We water this combination, and due to the reaction of the material inside the plastic cover, methane gas is produced. This gas gets filtered and sent either directly to the generator, or to the ovens to be used for cooking.

Abo Aboud - Farmer
After I saw how expensive gas has become, and I needed to use my generator for watering my plants and animals, the local committee told me about this alternative and they taught me how to do this hole to produce gas. Because of this hole, now I am watering my land, and my animals have water to drink, and I also have gas to be used at home as well.

Abo Aboud - Farmer
This hole is in its final stages. Everyday, the gas it produces helps us get our generators working so we can extract water from the ground.

09 Apr 2014

Footage shot in Al-Meliha on April 6, 2014 - Government forces launched a pre-emptive attack on Damascus' eastern suburb of Al-Meliha.
Al-Meliha is a town of great strategic importance for the control of Damascus. It is located next to the city of Jaramana, on the road leading to Damascus International Airport. It is also considered as an important entrance to Damascus.

Abu Ali - Commander of the Ali Mustapha Brigade: "What happened in the last three days was pressure and attacks by Assad's forces and shabiha. With God's will we were able to stop this attack and harm government forces by destroying several of their tanks and killing at least twenty five government soldiers, not counting the bodies they took with them and the ones who ran away. Al-Meliha was attacked by several sides. They attacked from Temico, Al-Nour checkpoint, the diesel silos, as well as from Jobar and Deir Salman. They tried to attack from more than five or six places."

Abu Mohammad - Field Commandew on Al-Meliha Front: "In the Name of God the Merciful, we are here resisting and patient, in the land of Jihad, in Al-Meleha in Eastern Ghouta. We stopped several army advances and surprises them many times. There was a lot of dead on the regime side. Thanks to God we are still here and we are patient. This is a very strategic area."

Abu Nader - Al-Meliha resident: "We are in the FSA control area of Al-Meliha. This is Al-Meliha's municipality and police station. Nothing here remains under regime's."

Young Syrians from Students to Firemen
Aleppo
By Transterra Editor
09 Apr 2014

Storyline:
Like Ahmed Al Ali, Ahmed Al Masri and Abed Allatif Al Zain from Aleppo, many young men have been forced to out of school because of the war in Syria. The three teenagers are wanted by the government for taking parts in demonstrations. They decided to volunteer as firefighters in rebel controlled areas of Aleppo, "until the regime breaks down" they say. In their free time, Ahmed Al Ali, Ahmed Al Masri and Abed Allatif Al Zain say they like to read poetry and books so that they don't forget what they learned in school.

Interviews:
- Ahmed Al Ali: "I’m a high school student in my last year. I joined the revolution after I took part in many protests. After the rebels took over many areas in Aleppo, I volunteered at the fire department of Aleppo with a few of my schoolmates. Thank god we were able to extinguish a few fires and saved many lives. Hopefully I will go back to school when the war is over".

  • Ahmed Al Masri: "I’m a university student, I joined the revolution and I wasn’t able to continue my studies. We gathered a group of friends to volunteer as firemen and help extinguish fires in Aleppo. This mission didn’t keep me from studying. In our free time we still read poetry and literature books. We hope everything will go back to normal so that and we can go back to university. When the war is over, will be proud to have helped our country by being part of Aleppo's fire department.

  • Abed Allatif Al Zain: "I’m a high school student in my last year. I dropped out of school and joined the revolution. Then I registered at Bab Al Nayrab fire department in Aleppo. We helped extinguish many fires. Thank god we were able to take control and saved many lives. My friend Ahmed suggested that we keep reading books so we wouldn’t forget what we have studied before. We are hoping to go back to school when the revolution wins.

Eastern Ghouta-Chemical Attack Aftermath
Zamalka, Eastern Ghouta, Syria
By Transterra Editor
09 Apr 2014

Seven months after the Sarin gas attack on the Damascus suburb of Ghouta on August 21st, 2013, some survivors speak out. Estimates of the death toll range between 300 to more than one thousand. The attack was blamed on the government of Syrian President Bashar al Assad.

Om Mahmoud – Medic
''This is the road I take everyday for work and on the day of the attack it was really hard to see here, it was all covered in fog. A missile hit over there and another one over here, they were car accidents cause the people couldn’t see anything. There were bodies everywhere; we were basically walking on corpse. We didn’t know what to do; we didn’t expect the chemicals to be dropped in these proportions. We did all we can do to help and save people. I hope we saved lots of lives.''

Name – Profession: Om Mahmoud – Medic
''The strike happened at 2:30 in the morning, 2 passed 10 we saw the missiles in the air. At first we thought it was regular chemical weapons, which will give us 3 or 4 martyrs only, like they always hit us with. Of course no one believes that they’re using chemical weapons on us. We took the people to the roofs, thinking that the chemicals stay on the ground, cause it’s heavy. Then people started calling for everyone to leave Zamalka, I was like, I’m medical staff, I have to stay here. All the way here the road was covered in fog and ambulances. I arrived to this area; there were corpses and car accidents everywhere. Here hit the first shell close to the hospital, and there was a huge amount of martyrs here. We were forced to walk on the corpses so we could save some people. At the end we couldn’t even see the needles that we were supposed to use. We did all we could, to help the children and women. Finally we were hit as well; our nervous system was hit at the hospital. Another shell hit the same area here next to the hospital, and we couldn’t do or feel anything. We couldn’t see or here, our nerves were not functioning. It took me two days to recover, I was one of the first people vomiting blood, and the doctors were surprised. There were other cases too, different ones since there were thousands of people who were hit, and children were hit. It was really horrible; whoever didn’t see this can’t imagine what it was like. There were bodies everywhere, we were taking them and putting them in cars, I was bleeding and vomiting blood. I was affected by the chemical, I feel like I have the flu constantly and I’m experiencing hair loss. I’m affected by the chemical, it’s for good. No one believed us; they think we’re imagining all this. Whatever we say it’s not enough. If we buried the children and elderly, if Buthayna Shaaban and come and see. They think we played them; it’s Bashar al Assad who played us.

Interviewer: What are the after effects of the strike?

Om Mahmoud: Everybody is suffering from depression. There is not a single home that didn’t lose a family member. There are families where only one person is left alive. You see those people have completely lost their minds. I know someone in that situation. You can see him walk down the street and he’s completely disillusioned. His brothers, sisters and parents are all gone. Families as they were sleeing all died. Some bodies were found after several days, once the chemical dispersed from the air. All this is a lesson for us, so we’d know that the regime is corrupt and everyone supports it. They think we’re not from this earth, we’re residents of Mars.

Interviewer: Did you lose anyone?

Om Mahmoud: I didn’t lose anyone from my family but I lost lots of colleagues and friends. In Eastern Ghouta, a lot of people died. At least 6 people from the medical center, where I work, died. Sadly.''

FSA Fighter:
''On the day of the chemical attacks, we were sleeping, so were the civilians. Some of the revolutionaries were on the frontline and at 2:30 in the morning, they hit us with chemical weapons. We felt it and went outside and found people dying so we called for first aid to come and help the people in these towns. Hundreds of people were affected, children, women and men. We were working in aiding people, driving back and forth and getting the affected. Some people died from the shelling as they were being transported, they hit the area with missiles and rockets. They hit us with everything there is and destroyed the buildings and the streets, so that ambulances wouldn’t be able to transport the people. The shelling kept going for three days, with rockets and warplanes, on Zamalka. Thank to God though the army wasn’t able to move forward.

Interviewer: Were any children martyred?

FSA Fighter: Children are dying here because of the chemical attack, and there is around a 1000, 1500 martyrs that were taken from Zamalka.

Interviewer: What are the psychological and other effects?

FSA Fighter: The effect is that you walk around here and not see anyone, everyone left. Young people, men and children, all left, there’s no one left. You walk around here and find yourself alone. You tell yourself this is this person’s house and that is that family’s but no one left here.''

Interviewer: Are you suffering from any side effects?

Man: Thank God no.
Interviewer: What about ant psychological effect?

Man: This one of course, we were shocked to witness our friends and neighbors killed. Every road we took, we saw someone we know who was dead. It was saddening.''
