Daesh releases dozens of detainees in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor

 

Daesh has released dozens of detainees whom it arrested before in villages located in Deir Ezzor’s western countryside.

 

The released included 4 civilians from the village of Al-Safirah, Deir Ezzor’s western countryside, who were arrested for around 70 days, and 8 others from the area of Al-Shamiyah who spent 2 months in a Daesh-run prison.

 

Sources indicated to D24 that some Daesh commanders were intending to execute a large number of detainees, however, after some of the organization’s high-ranking commanders intervened, the detainees were released.

 

The organization arrested around 156 civilians in several villages in the western countryside two months ago, including Safira Tahtani, Hamar Al-Ali, Hawayej Diyab and Hawayej Al Busamaa. All of them were arrested on various charges, ranging from illegal crossing into the SDF-held areas or communication with them.
