Women & Men loyal to President Assad in a besieged region of Damascus are being paraded in metal cages in the hope of preventing further air- strikes raining down on a stricken suburb of the Syrian capital. Almost 500 Alawites have been rounded up by ISIS militants and are now being held captive in the cubed jails mounted on the back of flat-bed trucks and pick-ups. The locals see this extreme retaliation as the only way of ensuring the airborne attacks are ended.
