Ankara Seeking Swap Of Syria Abductees For Turkish Officers

Turkey is reportedly seeking to obtain the release of dozens of foreign nationals kidnapped by Syria’s foreign-sponsored insurgents in exchange for Turkish officers 
captured by the Syrian Army.

An informed source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Saturday that Turkey is holding talks with Syrian armed groups to try to convince them to free about 70 Iranian, Iraqi, Lebanese, and Syrian citizens, whom they have abducted over the past few months.

The source added that a number of the kidnapped foreign nationals have even been handed over to the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad.

Syria’s state-run television network reported on August 6 that a group of Turkish and Saudi Arabian officers were captured in the northwestern city of Aleppo during clashes between government troops and foreign-sponsored insurgents.
