The manufacturer comes from Vietnam, therefore a small note: Who decides who is terrorist? The one freedom fighter is the other terrorist. Especially in Syria the distinction is really difficult.

I suspect that defining a terrorist is particularly difficult when describing resin figures whose motivations and modus operandi are, well, non-existent. They would be equally inappropriately described as 'freedom fighters' as the distinction is all about perspective and circumstances. Not sure of the relevance of the country of manufacture either.

The issue I have is that, like most modelled dead bodies, they look too stiff and unrealistic. Unfortunately there is plenty of reference material about and to me they just don't look like actual corpses. Not saying I could do better but I don't see that as a requirement to offer criticism of how something compares to reality.

That would depend on how the scene builder depicts them.It would seem the manufacturer made them genetic.The builder decides what or who he wants to depict.

Only you can decide who is a freedom fighter, and who is a terrorist. It's something everyone has to define according to his own views.
