On the outskirts of the Syrian city of Damascus 3 young men in their 20`s were whipped in public for consuming a illegal substance. They were found to be in possession of marijuana and cigarettes. After the militants whipped the men they labeled as drug addicts they set the marijuana and cigarettes they confiscated on fire.
