To obtain money | Kidna*ppers torture two young Syrian brothers in Lebanon

SOHR activists obtained pictures and a part of a video showing cruel scenes of the torture of two Syrian brothers in Lebanon, one of which is 16 years old and the other in 13 years old, where they were tortured by kidnappers in Lebanon.

According to reliable SOHR sources, the kidnappers demanded 45,000 USDs from the families of the two children, who hail from the Al-Quriya eastern of Deir Ezzor, to release them as the two children were kidnapped from their place of residence in Lebanon.

On Late April, SOHR sources reported that a kidnapping gang in Lebanon released a Syrian young man from Mahkan town in eastern Deir Ezzor countryside, who was kidnapped days ago on Jabal Lebanon Hospital street in order to obtain a ransom. The young man was subjected to brutal torture during his kidnapping, including electric shocks and sending recorded videos to his family to exert pressure on them to pay the ransom. The kidnappers asked the relatives of the kidnapped young men to pay 25,000 USD , but an agreement was reached for 10,000 USD, where they gave the family a 24-hour deadline to pay the amount or they will kill the young man.

Meanwhile, the young man’s relatives sought help from people in the town, who collected the amount due to the poor circumstances of the young man’s family and sent it to the kidnappers to release him.
