Last week we asked you what should be done with a convoy of hundreds of ISIS fighters and their families that fled fighting and was stuck in the Syrian desert, halted by the U.S.-led coalition.

Below we tell you what happened in reality but first here are you answers and comments:

  • 1.5% said they should be allowed to disperse after questioning.
  • 19.9% were of the opinion women and children should be free to go but all men arrested.
  • 32.5% maintained the entire group should stand trial.
  • 29.1% said the entire group should be incarcerated without trial.
  • 17% said it’s nothing to do with the West. Let the Syrians sort this out themselves.

 

And now to some of your comments:

  • “As the terrorists have said, ‘It’s blood for blood.'”
  • “They acted as a group. They should be tried as a group.”
  • “Let the country deal with it under their laws which they understand.”
  • “They should all be detained and treated humanely until an investigation is completed and charges land.”
  • “The Syrians will kill them all.”
  • “Forever in the worst prison conditions!”
  • “These are the enemy. You eliminate them!”

 

So, what happened in reality? Well, one of the options Clarion presented you with last week is what actually happened. 17% of you said the Syrians should sort this out themselves and that is what happened.

The U.S. called off its surveillance of the convoy at Russia’s request. As a result, the fate of the Islamic State fighters and their families now lies in the hands of the Syrian regime.
