Judging by the style of clothing, this faction seems to consists of war veterans or even criminals with urban style outfit. Several of them wear winter hats and they are all seen in thick brown jackets, suggesting that they hail from a cold region (most likely the Balkans).
The Balkans were first seen in Dust2 in the first Global Offensive trailer. The Balkans were the third Terrorist model added to the Beta and appeared on more maps prior to the August 10th, 2012 update. Their hand model features a thick brown jacket with a red sleeve poking out the end with black cloth gloves. They appear on four maps: Train, Nuke, Shorttrain, and Monastery. They fight the SEAL Team 6 in Train, the SAS in Nuke and Shorttrain, and engage the GSG-9 in Monastery.
