The terrorist group Daesh has executed one of dozens of hostages abducted from Syria’s southern province of Sweida last month, Al Arabiya news channel reported on Sunday.
The terrorist group killed the 19-year-old male student on Thursday after kidnapping more than 30 people, mostly women and children, from a village in Sweida during a deadly rampage on July 25, the head of the Sweida24 news website, Nour Radwan, said.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, said it was the first execution since the kidnappings.
Quoting relatives, Radwan said the young man was taken from the village of Al-Shabki on July 25 along with his mother.
On July 25, Daesh carried out a series of attacks in Sweida’s provincial capital and several villages that killed more than 250 people, mostly civilians.
It was the deadliest attack ever to target the mostly government-held province.
