Activists: 13 jailed Syrian women released

Published: 10.23.13, 12:11 / Israel News

The Syrian government has released 13 jailed women, a rights group said on Wednesday, a move that is likely part of an ambitious regional prisoner exchange.


The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the women were released Tuesday morning from the headquarters of the Damascus provincial government, but said they had not been able to contact the women. The women may have been released as part of a three-way exchange that began on October 18. It saw Syrian rebels release nine Lebanese men held for a year and a half. (AP)
