Young men from the Bekaa town of Brital on Sunday kidnapped six Syrians east of the city of Baalbek, in retaliation to the last week abduction of a Brital resident.
“Unknown individuals kidnapped near Baalbek six Syrians who hail from the Syrian town of Durra,” state-run National News Agency reported.
“This comes in retaliation to the kidnap of Brital resident Yasser Ismail, who was abducted last week in the town's outskirts,” it added.
Earlier on Sunday, LBCI television said “members of the Sawsaq family abducted six Syrians between Brital and Hawrtaala in retaliation to the kidnap of a man from the Ismail family in Arsal's outskirts two days ago."
Citing reports, LBCI said the abductee was transferred to Syrian territory after his abduction.
Later on Sunday, NNA said Syrian national Mahmoud Ismail and his son were released in the evening, after they were kidnapped by gunmen Saturday near the town of Sirein al-Tahta “in retaliation to the abduction of Lebanese national Yasser Ali Ismail.”
It noted that Yasser was nabbed from the barren mountains of the Eastern Mountain Belt in Brital before being taken to Syria.
