At the ten second mark, just listen for the text tone. There’s a bunch of really complex stuff happening in this video. Rebels are scrambling around in a trench line frantically trying to not die, meanwhile Abu Hajaar here has to shoot his mom a quick text message. I bet it read something like this.
Mom: “Abu Hajaar, what are you doing? You better not be out with those boys shooting rockets at tanks again. I swear to Allah, if you are, I’m going to come down to Aleppo myself and drag you out of your fighting position by your ear!”
Hajaar: “Moooom, not right now, in the middle of a really important ambush. You’re embarrassing me in front of my friends!”
On a more serious note, at least the cell reception is pretty good out in Aleppo. I can’t even send or receive texts out in the field while training.
