Soldier Jumps off Cliff to Avoid Capture

A fighter in the ranks of the National Defense Forces (NDF), Yousef Haddad, tells his story of escape when he was left fighting against militants of the "Free Syrian Army" (FSA) and their al-Qaeda allies, Jabhat al-Nusra (Nusra Front), on top of a mountain in Maaloula, when the militants invaded the historic Christian village. Running out of ammunition and co-fighters, he chose to throw himself down a mountain instead of surrendering, where he later got rescued by a unit of NDF and Syrian Army fighters. Source: NDF media
