The Trauma of ISIS Occupation

24 March

For four years, ISIS terrorised the Syrian city of Maskanah. The group’s extreme Islamism saw public executions with bodies left for days as a warning to the townspeople. Children were influenced and taught how to fight and carry arms. Informers were everywhere, and once denounced, ISIS’s rough justice mostly meant death. After liberation, the children are trying to get their lives back despite the trauma of ISIS occupation.
