For the past four Months, the Free Syrian Army has introduced a new form of punishment on the captured pro-regime paramilitaries: "shaving half of their moustaches". Moustaches are a sign of manhood, and thus shaving it is considered to be a humiliating punishment. It also looks funny. Nevertheless, the punishment is serious, one of the FSA videos hinted at a follow-beheading of the captured paramilitaries. First, lose half of your Moustache, then your head. In the video, the man is seen suffering while his Moustache is cut with a pair of scissors, while the FSA militants are celebrating with the usual "Allahu Akbar", God is Great chants.
Above, three paramilitaries (Shabeeha) are displayed chanting for the Free Syrian Army with half Moustaches, shaved in the FSA salons.
