UPDATE: 300 Cement Workers Taken Hostage By ISIS,175 Have Now Been Executed – There’s More…

ISIS kidnapped 300 workers from a cement factory in Syria this week. I said that when it happened it was as good as a death sentence for those poor people and that is exactly what is playing out unfortunately. 175 of the 300 have now been executed by ISIS. The workers and contractors of Al Badia Cement company were taken from near the town of Dumeir and their employer had lost all contact with them, the industry ministry is quoted as saying. They had no success in establishing any contact with the workers after that. The abduction came as fighting with ISIS militants raged in northern Syria on Thursday. Syrian opposition fighters have advanced on strongholds of the terror group, including the ISIS-held town of al-Rai in northern Aleppo along the border with Turkey.

From Young Conservatives:

ISIS fighters have reportedly executed 175 of the 300 kidnapped cement workers outside the Syrian capital Damascus, according to the Syrian state’s military.

Extremists seized the labourers from an area close to the town of Dumeir, northeast of the capital.

The hostages were taken near the spot where militants had launched an assault against forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad earlier this week.

The workers and contractors of Al Badia Cement company were taken from near the town of Dumeir and their employer had lost all contact with them, the industry ministry is quoted as saying.

A source in the company told state-run news agency SANA that there has been no success in efforts to establish contact with any of the workers.

SANA said ’employees and executives of the Al-Badia cement factory’ were abducted by the jihadists, after local residents reported that at least 250 workers at the plant had been missing since Monday.

These barbaric savages need to be wiped from the face of the earth. The Syrian source said Tuesday night’s attacks outside Damascus appeared to be the Jihadist group’s response to actions in and around Palymra. ISIS attackers, using five bomb-laden cars, also struck military positions near the Dumeir military airport 25 miles northeast of Damascus, killing 12 soldiers, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. ISIS claimed the bombings in an online statement, saying it carried out a suicide attack on government forces which were moving north from the military airport. Government forces responded with shelling and air strikes around the Dumeir area, which is held by a rebel group sympathetic to ISIS, the Observatory said. It added that the strikes have killed at least 15 civilians there, including four young girls from the same family, and that around 15 Islamic State fighters, as well as the drivers of its five bomb-laden cars, died in the clashes. The Syrian military source said 13 of the group’s fighters had been killed in clashes in the area around Dumeir. I would not look for the rest of the kidnap victims to come home alive. ISIS doesn’t play that way.
