Prisoner swap | Turkish-backed “National Army” and regime forces swap prisoners in northern Aleppo
Syrian Observatory activists have confirmed that a prisoner swap took place between the Turkish-backed “National Army” and regime forces nearby Azaz city in northern Aleppo. Regime forces have released a rebel in return for the release of a woman “spying for the regime forces and Hezbollah”.
It is worth noting that the opposition fighter who was released by regime forces, had been arrested by Kurdish forces in Afrin and he was handed in later to regime forces before the Kurds left the city.
On May 22, SOHR sources reported that a new prisoners swap took place between “Hurras al-Din” organization and regime forces, in Taftnaz area in north-eastern Idlib. According to SOHR sources, “Hurras al-Din” agreed to release three regime soldiers captured in earlier battles in Jabal Al-Turkman in northern Latakia, in return for the release of a jihadist’s wife, another woman and three children (sons of the two women).
