    I found it by japanese camo uniform shop. They said it's syrian lizard camo uniform. But, I have not seen syrian soldier wear this until now...
    Probably this will be camo uniform of middle east area. What do you think?

    I have never seen this before. I don't think it is Syrian military, but it does look to be Middle Eastern or perhaps SE Asian.

    Not on-point, but you've got some pretty smart optics on whatever sort of camera you're using. Nice photos. =]

    That's a pretty unusual weave for a camouflage cloth.

    Wild guess is an Asian, perhaps Indian, contract piece for an African country.

    White strikes me is the pointed (button?) down pistol belt loops that are in addition to trouser belt loops. This is a very typical feature of ME/African uniforms. That part, at least, is not US influenced and not a feature of Thai uniforms that I recall. The squared off pockets and epaulettes on the shirt are also fairly common features for that region, though they are obviously common for a lot of places.

    Whatever it is, it's not a common uniform or we'd already have identified it.
