An Islamic Army offers to exchange some female detainees for a military commander

SOHR [Syrian Observatory of Human Rights] received a copy of a footage shows a journalist in an Islamic front with 4 old women and a girl.

The journalist said that they were brought them from other factions in order to swap them with a commander of a group in an Islamic faction who was arrested by the pro-regime militiamen in the towns of Nobbol and al- Zahraa, where the journalist said that the regime forces had arrested some fighters of the rebel and Islamic battalions and that they have tried to communicate through negotiations to exchange bodies and detainees between the regime forces and the rebel and Islamic factions.

“We have some sisters who are not detainees or Sabaya (women as spoils of war) but they are honorable guests bringing them to swap them for an brother in the factions”, the journalist added.

“We offered this request to whom it may concern from the pro-regime forces in Nobbol and al-Zahraa but they refused it, noting that those sisters existed with us, and that we offered the request through negotiators more than one time but they refused to exchange them for one person who is “Yousef Zaw’ah”, the journalist continued…

Trading women? We really are going back to the 7th century.
