Thirty-seven Syrian Christians who were being held hostage by ISIS have been released, it is reported by AINA.
Among them were some who had been abducted last February from the Khabour valley in the Hassaké region, when 35 villages were attacked.v More than three thousand people had to flee. Those released today were captured from the villages of Tal Shamiram and Tal Jazira. Twenty-seven of them were women, and the rest elderly people. They arrived safely in the town of Tel Amar.
There are still many Christian prisoners being held by ISIS, including 168 from villages in the Khabour valley, and 185 others captured at Qaryatayn. But this release gives hope for the rest.
