Ten women and six men were released by the regime in exchange for three regime soldiers held by Jabhat a-Nusra, a leading Victory Army faction, reported pro-opposition Orient News on Wednesday. One of the women was reportedly the mother of a correspondent for Orient News. State-owned Tishreen newspaper confirmed the prisoner exchange, claiming that “terrorist organizations” released 27 individuals they kidnapped from Ishtabraq.
