The sickest protest: Syrian children dressed up as ISIS hostages in a cage for anti-Assad protest
17 February, 2015
Dressed in orange jumpsuits, a group of young children are locked in a cage in a chilling recreation of the ISIS video showing a Jordanian pilot being burned alive , the Daily Mail reports.

Nearby, a man holds a flaming torch like the one used to set fire to Lt Moaz al-Kasasbeh in scenes that have horrified the world.

Thankfully, this was just a stunt by activists calling for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's alleged atrocities to be likened to those meted
out by the jihadists.

Inside the cage, the children, some of whom appear to be as young as three, carry banners reading: 'Stop the killing of children'.

The protest, held in Douma, near Damascus, aims to draw attention to Syrians living under siege and dying from air strikes by forces loyal to Assad.

It also condemned the lack of international action compared to that given to the fight against ISIS.
