BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:25 P.M.) – Earlier today, the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) announced that their terrorists had executed a 19 year old male student from the Al-Sweida Governorate.
According to local activists, the 19 year old student was kidnapped from the Al-Sweida Governorate town of Shubaiki, which is in the eastern part of the province.
ISIS kidnapped the young man and 30 others after launching a surprise terrorist attack on his hometown.
A military source in Al-Sweida told Al-Masdar this morning that the Islamic State executed the young man to pressure the government to accept their terms.
The source said that the Islamic State wants a large sum of money, but the government has refused to give them the ransomed amount.
In response, the government has threatened to annihilate all of the Islamic State terrorists if they do not immediately release the kidnapped civilians.
Below is a short video of the 19 year old student before the Islamic State terrorists executed last Thursday:
