Bashar al-Assad regime’s ministry of tourism is carrying out Syria’s beauty queen pageant in the coastal governorate of Tartus where the majority of his fighting soldiers hail from.
According to the event’s Facebook page, a number of participants have already been chosen to compete for the crown titled “Syrian Hope Beauty Queen”.
Tartus has provided Assad with the lion’s share of soldiers fighting for his regime against democratic groups.
A 2014 announcement made by the anti-regime Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that half of Assad forces’ deaths were soldiers from Tartus.
A member of Assad’s parliament, Wael Melhem, has previously bemoaned the tough conditions that Tartus soldiers suffer from while on duty.
Melhem said that the Tartus troopers are struggling with poor quality of food and low wages, at a time when the pro-Assad Iranian militias enjoy better circumstances.
