Nusra Secures Releases of 7 in Prisoner Exchange

Islamist rebels free six men and one woman from regime prison in swap deal, activists say

The Nusra Front conducted a prisoner exchange with Assad forces Wednesday in the Qaboun neighborhood of Damascus. The operation led to the release of six men and one woman, all residents of Qaboun.

Activists said the released detainees were: “Imad Abu Azan, Iyad Abu Azan, Mazen al-Midani, Samer Abdul Wahid, Muhannad Abdul Hai, Amjad Abdul Hai, and a woman from as-Saghir family".

Details of the exchange are still unclear, as Nusra has not yet revealed with whom these detainees were exchanged.
