Except, perhaps, for a few close US allies, they're by far the most common
among anyone, anywhere.

Have that many SKS's been seen in the hands of the

That many have been seen everywhere else you might care to point. There are
75 million+ AK-47's in circulation, but 15 million+ SKS's aren't exactly
rare, especially in the Middle East.

And if you insist on proof of the obvious and well-known, Google is your
friend. In between the Support Kurds in Syria stuff, you'll find pages and
pages on the use of SKS's by rebels in Syria.
