BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has issued a final ultimatum to the Islamic State (ISIS) in regards to the 30+ prisoners that are held captive by the terrorist group.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army is not going to pay the ransom sum that the Islamic State demanded.

The source said that Syrian Army negotiators told the Islamic State that if they do release the 30+ prisoners in the coming days, they will be destroyed.

In order to pressure the Syrian military to pay the ransom, the Islamic State executed one of the kidnapped civilians from the Al-Sweida Governorate on Thursday.

The Syrian Army was hoping to do a prisoner exchange with the terrorist group, especially after they captured over 200 members of the ISIS-affiliated Jaysh Khaled bin Walid forces.

However, ISIS was reportedly not interested in a prisoner exchange and demanded the Syrian Arab Army pay the ransom.

ISIS is currently trapped inside the Badiya Al-Sham region of northeast Al-Sweida, as they no longer have any outlet to retreat from.

that is not much of a threat by the saa since isis is expecting to be destroyed,instead the army should have threatened to torture them to death and skin them alive with no amnesty or evacuation deal

Zaid, Daesh members are all ruthless killers and they have no value for human life in any case. They are not bothered about their own life or that of their opponents or civilians. Daesh has an upper hand right now due to the number of hostages they are holding and using them for bargaining. If you look they know they can’t escape and are not asking to be freed in exchange for the hostages. Syrian Army cannot threaten to torture them to death and skin them alive as you said mainly because it doesnt matter to them at all. Whom… Read more »

“that if they do release the 30+ prisoners in the coming days, they will be destroyed.” you mean if they “don’t release” how can you make such childish grammatical errors?

All they got to do to ISIS members is threaten to get a whole heap of homosexual men to go rub their bums against ISIS members. This should persuade ISIS to give up the prisoners.

Bad threat! Such religious fanatics don’t care about being destroyed : roaches love death more than humans love life and think they’ll go to a heaven (that actually doesn’t exists). Thus, these retards believe in this, and also in djinns, ghosts and witchcraft. Promise them a haraam death that will prevent them from going to heaven, and you’ve got it! Having their carcasses eaten by pigs and even making ’em believe they may be eaten alive by these or bing used as fückholes for pigs is worst than death for these creeps although the 2 last options may fall under… Read more »

The low down scum of the earth loser like you has spoken once again. The pig and roach in which you have so much in common with has more value in respect in our religion than you. Please pardon me for comparing you sometimes to such creatures for you are indeed lower because at lest the pig and roach submit to the Creator of the heavens and earth. Perhaps human filth like you will not realize the pitiful,appalling, and pathetic state you are in until the Angel of Death violently tears out your foul wretched soul. You will definitely meet… Read more »
