It appears with similar captions on a lot of Middle Eastern websites. The earliest date I have found is February 2015, when it is described as "Iraqi officials".

Then it seems to have spread around Twitter and a lot of blogs with the "Syrian opposition in Istanbul" caption. I am none the wiser, other than that it certainly wasn't taken this year. Annoyingly the Iraq Newspaper website above has no other info other than the caption.

Thanks, I guess it's pretty easy to stick a caption on a picture like that - just pick the group of people you don't like and a vague description of them ... no need to name them or or anything - they look like they could be "syrian opposition" or "iraqi officials" so that's good enough. Probably a wedding party.
