Skip to comments.ISIS kidnaps dozens of women, girls in deadly Syria raids

A war monitoring group says Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters seized 36 women and children during simultaneous attacks on the southeastern province of Sweida last week. The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Monday that 20 women and 16 children were seized from al-Shobki village in Sweida during the Wednesday attacks.
The ambush by suspected ISIS militants left at least 221 people dead. Reports on social media suggest ISIS has sent photos of some of the kidnapped women, most of them from the minority Druze sect prevalent in Sweida, to their families in via WhatsApp.
The suspected ISIS kidnappers have purportedly made demands for the women and children's release, but the families have not said what they're demanding.
Syrian warplanes carried out a number of airstrikes targeting ISIS positions in the northern and eastern countryside of Sweida at dawn on Monday. The strikes targeted the Kara'a area, which is considered a major ISIS stronghold in the desert of Sweida province.
Sweida, which is mainly government-held and populated with members of Syria's Druze minority, had been largely insulated from the conflict raging in the rest of the country since 2011, but on Wednesday, a string of suicide blasts and shootings claimed by ISIS shattered the peace in the provincial capital and nearby villages, most of them civilians.
The ISIS jihadists abducted the women and children from al-Shobki village, according to the Syrian Observatory, which said four women had since managed to escape while another two had died. That left 14 women and 16 children in ISIS captivity, said Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman. Another 17 men were unaccounted for, but it was unclear if they were also kidnapped.
ISIS has not claimed the kidnappings and no details on them could be found on its propaganda channels.

Thanks 0bama! The "JV" team is at it again and again and again.....
In all the years obama brennan clinton/ kerry armed and supported ISIS
I do not remember ever hearing about one single US military raid to free kidnapped women and children held as sex slaves, even when there were public markets
So much for “ children in cages”
Among other things, Islamic Jihadists are sexual perverts taking after their leader, child abuser, Mohammed.
Use special forces to find them, interrogate them, and kill them all, including their families.
This was 8 days ago, IIRC. ISIS is demanding ransom money, and says if it is not paid, they will be burned alive.
Some of the girls look to be ten or eleven in pictures I have seen of them.
ISIS is just celebrating Diverity and enriching other cultures. This is what they do, and who are we to judge? This is the cowardly Liberals way of crawling in their belly and licking boots.
My way is hunt them like animals, then Kill them slowly. And repeat until they are extinct; and the fear they have of being obliterated is greater than their zeal to impose their will on others.
We must speak the language they understand
*** Use special forces to find them, interrogate them, and kill them all, including their families. ***
ISIS approached Sweida from the direction of Al Tanf. I don’t think Special Forces, if you mean US Special Forces would be of much help since they failed to notice close to 31 ISIS vehicles driving past the US Military installation at Al Tanf.
I’m surprised I had not seen or heard of it. News blackout?
That explains why it is not really news.
Whatever it takes, the people that support terrorism need to pay big time.
“I wish we could just kill these cockroaches off.”
If the US was acting in its’ best interests it would support Assad in gaining control over all of Syria, from border to border.
Assad is perfectly willing and able, but for any assistance required he just has to call his buddy Vladimir.
That’s a pretty low cost clean-up job.
sounds like a win-win to me. At this point it’s better than sending our troops in.
*** Im surprised I had not seen or heard of it. News blackout? ***
Only in the US. Has the US news shown the 221 coffins of those killed by ISIS in the Sweida attack?
Kidnapping women? These people sound like they are from the days of Aladdin. Can we just either kill them all, or let the savages have at each other.
Why is Assad a bad guy again?
Uh, well, the heart wants what it wants.
Now that one I remember. I got rid of my cable so I lost OAN. They are better at reporting events around the world.
Because Barry and the Hildabeast said he was.
