This picture in Saudi media

This picture appeared on the front page of Khalid bin Sultan's mouthpiece, Al-Hayat, and in the mouthpiece of House of Thani, Al-Quds Al-`Arabi today.  Is this fake or what? It purports to show "Shi`ite fighters" in Syria.  Notice how prominently they are marking their location, and how they insist on identifying themselves as Shi`ites.  By the way, fabrications and distortion is daily in Saudi media.
