ARA News

Efrin, Syria− Residents of Qabtan al-Jabal area, 16 km west of Aleppo city, found on Friday a mass grave following the withdrawal of fighters of the alQaeda affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). 

Among the bodies found, three decapitated bodies belonged to two men and one woman from the Kurdish area of Jenderis in Efrin, who were kidnapped nearly four months ago by members of the ISIL and no news was heard about them ever since. 

The Assayish forces −security wing of the Democratic Union Party (PYD)− in the Kurdish-populated city of Efrin reported that a number of Kurdish civilians were kidnapped by the ISIL and that their destiny is still unknown. 

The incident coincided clashes between rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the al-Qaeda-linked ISIL fighters in the suburb of Aleppo and several locations in Raqqa province, north Syria.
