DAMASCUS, October 29 (Itar-Tass) - Extremists from the Ahrar ash-Sham movement raided a village in Syria’s Deir ash-Sham province last night to kidnap an influential member of the Syrian parliament, head of the al-Busaraya tribe, Sheikh Mouhanna al-Fayed.
As a security service member has said, the militants took hostages, including women and children, and demanded that Sheikh al-Fayed gave himself up in exchange for the hostages’ lives.
Also, the militants seized four of Sheikh Al-Fayed’s brothers, his uncle and eleven other relatives and escaped in cars stolen from local civilians. Before leaving the attackers set fire to 40 homes, including Sheikh al-Fayed’s own house.
The attackers have put forward no demands yet, and their whereabouts are still unknown.
