From Angry Arab's chief correspondent in Syria: "This is a photographed evidence that the Free Syrian Army is recruiting children. But the most shocking is that the piece is describing this crime in a poetic way and celebrating the moment when this child "became a man" (Arabic):
He puts his hands on his knees and starts crying (the death on one of his friend, another child combatant)... His young existence tries to understand what happened and what will happen... Then he stands up, his childhood has gone with his friend... He becomes a man in just one moment.... He looks at the far away horizon... than reattach the Kalashnikov on his shoulder..."
