Daesh posted photos of 14 Druze women kidnapped from Sweida, south of Syria, in a move aimed at blackmailing Druze militias to let them pass safely through the Hauran Mountain, Syrian local media said.
Daesh sent the photos to the families of the kidnapped women.
Deadly clashes between Druze fighters and Deash militants fueled in Sweida, where 400 people were killed and injured. The Druze fighters accuse the Syrian army of leaving them fighting Daesh militants alone.
The Druze tribes in Sweida refused to surrender their arms to the Syrian army on the pretext of defending themselves.
