Amnesty in wartime

In Syria, there are more than 100 militant groups fighting against the state army. Unusually, President Bashar Assad has offered an amnesty to militants who surrender. Any who haven’t completed mandatory military service are returned to the army. RT Doc gained access to a unit comprised of amnestied soldiers. Some joined militant groups voluntarily while others say they were held captive - whatever their circumstances, they all serve together.

Watch "Amnesty in Wartime" on RTD website and on RT’s live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT’s schedule page.
