Jihadis face execution without trial in Syrian jails as Assad says foreign ISIS members will be hanged
- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said he was setting up special terror courts
- Members of Islamic State held in the country will be subjected to ‘Syrian law’
- Thousands of prisoners have been secretly hanged in the Saydnaya Prison
Jihadis in prisons in Syria could face execution without trial after President Bashar al-Assad said he was setting up special terror courts, where the prisoners will be subjected to ‘Syrian law’.
Membership of Islamic State (IS) is a hanging offence in Syria and the brutal dictator has now said foreign members of IS in the country will be brought to justice.
Thousands of prisoners have been secretly executed inside the infamous Saydnaya Prison near Damascus, according to Amnesty International. Thousands more are said to have died there through torture and starvation.
Inmates are regularly beaten while crammed inside tyres, electrocuted and sexually assaulted. Some have been forced to act like animals and beat or kill one another.
