Jebel Akrad Mountains. Syria. 14th July 2012\nSmugglers and FSA in an FSA village in the Jebel Akrad mountains. \n\nSmugglers are key to the survival of the revolution. Until last year, they transported cigarettes and cattle from Syria into Turkey. Since the revolution began however, they have turned their hand to smuggling weapons, ammunition and medical supplies into Syria, and taking the wounded and refugees out to Turkey. Some are motivated by the lure of money but many more do so in support of the revolution.
