Al-Baath Party condemns abduction of Sweida branch’s official

Sweida, SANA – The Regional Leadership of al-Baath Arab Socialist Party condemned Saturday the abduction of secretary of the Party’s branch in Sweida Shibli Jannoud by terrorist organizations.

The leadership dismissed the act as “cowardly”, saying it reflects the culture of killing, abduction and blackmail characterizing those organizations.

Sources in Sweida province told SANA on Friday that armed terrorist groups kidnapped Jannoud and took him to an unknown area, as communications with Jannoud had been lost last Wednesday at about 9:00 am and his car was found burnt later on the day near Salkhad city.
