Al-Suwayda - SMART

An officer of the Syrian government forces participated with a gang in a kidnapping incident, as they kidnapped a child and a man from their house in the city of al-Suwayda, Southern Syria. The gang released the child and man after the locals knew about the officer's involvement in the incident.    

A source close the abductees' family reported that last Saturday, an officer from the Syrian government military security with masked men in three cars came to the family's house in the al-Mshurab neighborhood and pretended to be a security patrol. The gang and the officer took Asmaa Ahamd, 12-year-old child, and Ahmad Muhammad her sister's husband. The family was surprised about detaining the child.

The source, who preferred to stay anonymous, said that the abductees' family did not realize it is a kidnapping operation because they saw the officer with the gang.

The source added that after the incident, the family received a phone call from an unknown person asking them for a ransom to release Asmaa and Ahmad. After the call, the family realized that the officer is involved in the kidnap. The source said that the officer is well known in the city of al-Suwayda.   

After the kidnap story spread in social media pages, the family received a new call from the officer, saying that he will release Asmaa and Ahmad in exchange for not reporting him. The officer released the abductees on Tuesday, according to the source.

Over the last years, several kidnapping incidents occurred in al-Suwayda, as people complained about security absence and the spread of looting incidents. The people hold the Syrian government responsible for the situation in al-Suwayda.
