Two Weeks of Defections and Formations

The following is a list of available videos of defections and formations of new battalions and brigades over the past two weeks, as collected by PolishSoldier and posted on Yalla Souriya. The term “brigades” in the titles often refers to battalions. The number of defections is not overwhelming but remains very significant 20 months into the revolution. The amount of new formations however is immense, giving a further insight into recent developments in the armed uprising against the Assad tyranny. The videos have been sorted by province, covering 11 of the 13 Syrian provinces and all of their major cities.
