The militant group Jaysh al-Islam’s notorious Al-Tawba ‘Prison of Repentance’ was fortified with high barracks and linked with a number of underground tunnels, footage filmed in Douma on Thursday apparently reveals.

The prison was reportedly used by Jaish al-Islam as the headquarters for its leaders as well as a place for interrogation and torture.

Fighters and civilians taken from Douma and neighbouring areas were detained in Al-Tawba.

Prisoners were allegedly incarcerated inside iron cages which were found inside the jailhouse.

Like it or not NATO countries and others have been sponsoring terrorists to flood into Syria in a war of the West and Israel against Syria.

How can you be so blind ?
