Syria to swap prisoners for rebel-held Iranians

Published: 01.09.13, 12:19 / Israel News

The Syrian government will free 2,130 civilian prisoners on Wednesday in exchange for the release of 48 Iranians held by Syrian rebels, a board member of the Turkish humanitarian aid agency IHH said.

The rebels say the captives were Revolutionary Guards sent by Iran to help Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces crush their revolt. Iran, one of Assad's closest allies, has said they were pilgrims visiting Shi'ite Muslim shrines. (Reuters)
