Syrian rebels using caged pro-Assad captives as ‘human shields’

A major Syrian rebel group is using dozens of captives in metal cages as “human shields” in the largest opposition stronghold on the outskirts of Damascus, a monitor said Sunday.

Jaish al-Islam, regarded as the most powerful rebel group near the capital, has put regime soldiers and Alawite civilians it was holding in metal cages, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told AFP.

The group then placed these cages in public squares in the Eastern Ghouta region in an attempt to “prevent regime bombardment”, Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said.

  • This is who Obama wants to assume control of Syria.

    Speaking of human shields this is what Obama is doing with the 50 soldiers he plans to send to embed with the “moderate” rebels. I probably thinks having American human shields on the ground will deter Putin from bombing rebel positions. I don’t know why Americans aren’t demanding Obama’s impeachment and trial for treason. It is so obvious what he is doing.
