Rebels & Army talk across the battlefield
Extraordinary scenes captured here by Free Syrian Army forces of a dialogue between a defected Sergeant, who identifies himself as such complete with his unit, and an unidentified Army soldier a few yards away. The subject of discussion starts with what the Army soldier says was the killing of a relative by the rebels, but soon moves on to the nature of the Syria they are both fighting for.
What's incredibly sad is that they both pretty much want the same thing, a multi ethnic Syria based on freedom from fear. And then they start negotiating another defection. Such is the irony of war.
