ISIS has murdered a woman they had kidnapped in Sweida, south of Damascus, following hindering negotiations with reconciliation committees.
Activists on social media said that the murdered woman was named Thuraya Abu Ammar.
According to the Suwayda24 news site, the woman was 25 years old, and was kidnapped on July 25 during an ISIS attack on the Al-Shubky village east of Sweida.
The murder was carried out hours after a statement was released by the negotiating committee that stated it would withdraw from negotiating with ISIS about abductees, according to Russia Today, and that it feared ISIS would kill all those kidnapped after the release of the statement.
