Al-Suwaidaa Province and villages of the northern countryside of which were attacked by ISIS on the 25th of July 2018, are witnessing a sharp increase in resentment, after calls made by p[arties in al-Suwaidaa to consider the abductees of its countryside “as martyrs”, the great increase in the resentment came in conjunction with the release of a new video showing the displaced women alive, with the deterioration of the health of some abductees, where they were transported by cars slowly towards areas controlled by the” Islamic State “organization in Rif Dimashq, after the regime forces managed to regain control over the entire province of al-Suwaidaa.

This resentment is accompanied by the increase of concerns over the lives of abductees of al-Suwaidaa countryside, following the failure of the regime and dignitaries of al-Suwaidaa once more to reach an agreement that would end the suffering of abductees, and return them to their families, after being held for the 20th consecutive day by the “Islamic State” organization, where the regime refrains from carrying out the conditions of the Organization, which are securing a corridor to withdraw completely towards the desert of Homs, and releasing a number of ISIS members in Daraa and other detainees held by the regime in connection with ISIS.
