Nine Syrian soldiers were set free in exchange for the release of nine Turkish-backed militants in the al-Tadef area of the Aleppo Governorate on Monday.

The prisoner swap was conducted under the surveillance of Russian and Turkish troops, who have been monitoring this front since 2016.

One freed Syrian soldiers, who returned to the government’controlled area, commented that “They [militants] tortured me a lot because I was a soldier. I was very humiliated. I was mocked like a dog. I haven’t seen my father for 12 years.”

Another civilian freed from the militants said that “I still have signs of torture. I was tied up and held for the whole day in the ammunition box.”

More crimes against Syrians. They looted the industrial area, churches,mosques, private homes, autos, government vehicles, tractors, and about anything else not nailed down. Partook in kidnappings, murder, rape, and torture. May these criminals rot in h**l.
