ISF Liberates Kidnapped Syrian Girl
Agents from the Intelligence Branch of the Internal Security Forces on Thursday managed to liberate a Syrian toddler girl who was kidnapped in the morning from the Bekaa town of Barelias.
An ISF statement said the two captors were arrested in a “special operation” and that no ransom was paid.
The child, Saleha Ali al-Kattouh, had been nabbed from outside her house in Barelias.
In a phone interview with the National News Agency, her father said the captors had asked for a $250,000 ransom in a phone call from a Lebanese number.
“They used a silver SUV,” the father added.
The seven-year-old girl was abducted as she was getting into the school bus along with her two brothers.
Her father owns a clothes shop in Barelias.
