Video Shows Free Syrian Army Fighters Threatening to 'Slaughter' US Special Forces After they Moved into al-Rai with Turkish Troops

The US soldiers were working with Turkish forces as they advanced on al-Rai in preparation for an offensive against nearby al-Bab, which is controlled by the Islamic State (IS) group.

The FSA is allied with Turkish forces and ostensibly supported by the US as a "moderate" rebel group fighting against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

However, Friday's confrontation highlights the complex nature of the war in Syria.

In the video, fighters from the FSA chant that US forces are "pigs," "crusaders" and "infidels".

"Dogs, agents of America," one man can be heard to say in Arabic, while others chant: "They are crusaders and infidels, down with America, get out you pigs," and, "They are coming to Syria to occupy it."

A voice on a megaphone can be heard to say there will be a "slaughter". The US forces were reportedly forced to leave the town after the protests.

These so called 'moderate' FSA fighters have received a great deal of equipment from the US including anti-tank missiles. They are not secularists. The US is a state sponsor of terrorism. They supported Al Qaeda against Gaddafi in Libya and they continue to do the same in Syria.
