Syrian rebels have released an Armenian young man Asatur Sargsian kidnapped 12 days ago in Al-Hassakeh city, Syrian Armenians inform in their Facebook pages.

 

They say there is still no information about the 7 Armenians kidnapped from bus heading to Aleppo.

 

According to Tert.am’s sources, the steps toward releasing the Armenians are still underway but the kidnappers have not established communication and their identity is still unknown.

 

Days ago Syrian armed rebels stopped the bus heading from Beirut to Aleppo and kidnapped 11 people, 7 of who are Armenians.

The kidnappers demand release of the arrested 150 rebels to release the hostages.
