In an attempt to highlight atrocities of the Syrian regime, anti-government activists videotaped caged young children in a staged re-enactment of a brutal Islamic State video showing a trapped Jordanian pilot being burned to death.
The video, which has made the social media rounds since it surfaced on Monday, was allegedly taken in the battle-torn city of Douma.
It shows 15 caged children holding signs and wearing orange jumpsuits. A flaming torch is shown in the background.
The video, however, appears not designed to draw further outcry to the brutality of IS.
Instead, the video is calling on the world to intervene to save Douma children from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and attacks from pro-government forces.
The children carry signs in Arabic calling for support to save Douma kids. The children speak in Arabic saying Assad forces burn children and their schools.
