In the video, the soldiers appear to point their gun barrels at the buried rebel. As the unit’s commanding officer approaches, one of the soldiers’ turns to him and says: “Yes sir, we placed him in there as you have ordered.”
The officer then asks: “What’s he got? Did you find anything with this damn animal?”
The helpless man, described as being from Al-Qussair, a city in western Syria near Homs, is then accused of carrying a camera to capture footage of Assad’s forces to send to television networks.
The rebel is called an “animal” and a “dog” several times before the order is given to bury him.
