Hello, I was reading a story titled "Syria -- The death of a coutry" in this week's The Economist when I came across the following sentence: (The story is not bylined.) At first, I thought "enclave" meant "group of people". But I couldn't find such explanations in my dictionaries, which all say it is a "territory" instead. So I'm wondering whether it means a "group" or a "territory". And if it does mean "group of people", does it mean the Alawite sect? If it means "territory", what does "the biggest militia" refer to? Could someone kindly enlighten me on this? Thanks!
