According to The Telegraph, the video's origins are unknown, but both pro and anti-regime media sites are using the clip on their websites.
Its appearance on the pro-regime website SyriaTube suggests it might be taken at face value – as depicting a light-hearted moment shared by Syrian soldiers taking a break from the country's civil war.
Its appearance on Ugarit News – with an Arabic caption describing it as a "leaked video" in which "regime forces go crazy and start dancing to Western music" – suggests its use as anti-regime propaganda, mocking the soldiers.
The soldiers in the clip start off dancing, and there's even a conga line at one point. But when someone fires a gun into the air, they stop dancing and begin chanting, "With our souls, with our blood, we sacrifice for you, Bashar."
