The images, published on Facebook, show young Syrians looking dejectedly into the camera holding images of Pokemon characters with the words: “I am here, come save me”.

The signs also state the location of each child. They are all in different Syrian towns… The photos were posted by the Revolutionary Forces of Syria Media Office (RFS), a media outlet … working to spread the messages of Syrians against Bashar al-Assasd’s presidential regime.
