So, who are they, and why and how are they targeting American media?
This image posted on the official Facebook page of the Syrian Presidency on Aug. 1 purports to show Syrian President Bashar Assad shaking hands with a soldier during Syrian Arab Army day in Darya, Syria. Syrian state-run TV says Assad has visited a tense Damascus suburb to inspect his troops on the occasion of the country's Army Day. The visit on Thursday is Assad's first known public trip outside the capital, his seat of power, since he visited the Baba Amr district in the central city of Homs after troops seized it from rebels in March 2012. Daraya, just south of Damascus, was held by rebels for a long time and it took the army weeks of heavy fighting to regain control earlier this year. (AP Photo/Syrian Presidency via Facebook)
