ISIS forces in Syria executed one of the hostages they took with them from the city of Sweida when they attacked it last week, Syrian media reported today. The victim was identified as Muhannad Touqan Abu Amar, age 19.
The ISIS attack on Sweida - held by Bashir Assad's forces - took place on July 25. The organization's terrorists occupied villages and carried out suicide attacks inside Sweida, killing more than 200 people, many of them unarmed civilians.
A Syrian observer organization also reported Abu Amar executed. It said more than 30 people had been kidnapped in the attack on Sweida.
Most Sweida residents are Druze, whose leaders are in negotiations with ISIS about the hostage's fate.
On Wednesday the IDF identified a number of terrorists, apparently ISIS members, who were making their way through an enclave in the southern Golan Heights. IAF aircraft attacked the squad, and in the morning during searches of the area, seven bodies were found, and around them were vests, five Kalashnikovs, and grenades.
The IDF Spokesman said all seven terrorists who were killed belonged to the Islamic State Organization (ISIS).
