Israel, Turkey, USA, West, KSA-armed Daesh massacres 175 hostages from cement plant
The Takfiri Daesh terrorist group has massacred 175 workers it had earlier taken hostage from a cement factory northeast of the Syrian capital, Damascus, the Syrian military says.
A Syrian Industry Ministry official had said on Thursday that Daesh terrorists kidnapped 300 workers and contractors of the Al Badia Cement company from a factory near the town of Dumeir, to the northeast of Damascus.
Unconfirmed reports on Thursday said that around 140 of the workers abducted had managed to escape captivity.
Dumeir has been a recent flash point of clashes between Daesh and the Syrian military. The militants have been launching attacks on military positions in the area to gain more ground, but have been unsuccessful.
