Looks like authentic footage to me. Imagine if all the able bodied men in your neighborhood suddenly had to be thrown together and take up arms and go
attack a checkpoint. Maybe a checkpoint you had to walk through everyday for a year and you knew the guards well... And your home town is being
pressed by Syrian forces and shelled regularly.
The shooting looks real. The snap of rounds going out and coming in, sounds real. The body of the man shot being totally limp looks real. The peoples
reactions to the battle seem genuine. Don't see the enemy? Why would you, they are taking small arms fire and are keeping down. They could be prone
in the doorway or beneath a windowsill. If the rebels had an RPG they could have wiped that small shack out but they are hitting it with AK's.
