Five months ago, Fayez al-Abdullah was a first lieutenant in the Syrian army. He defected after witnessing the Assad regime’s atrocities against his fellow Syrians.

The video shows Fayez al-Abdullah and his men setting up roadblocks to inspect incoming traffic, as they fear car bombings by pro-government forces.
