In a particularly absurd display of military might, a large group of police officers in the northern Syrian city of Jarablus who had been trained by Turkey’s Security General Directorate chanted Islamic slogans, praising Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

During a 23-second video, scores of police officers are seen raising their right fists and belting out slogans in Arabic, including the repeated shouting of “Allahu Akbar,” ”Long live free Syria” and “Long live Erdoğan.”

The video footage, which was initially shared by Al Aan TV reporter Jenan Moussa, attracted strong reactions from hundreds of Turkish social media users and has been retweeted hundreds of times.
