10 April, 17:55

    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, APRIL 10 - An unspecified number of civilians has been abducted by jihadists from the Islamic State (ISIS) in central Syria after some 50 civilians were slaughtered on March 31, local sources in Mabuja, the village stormed by ISIS, told ANSA on Friday.

    Some survivors of the mass killing, who are now in Beirut where they have fled, said at least 10 civilians including seven women, have been kidnapped by the militants. The sources identified the abducted civilians by name.

    Other local sources spoke about some 30 civilians who were forced to leave with ISIS fighters.

    The UK-based monitoring group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) spoke about 50 abducted civilians, though it did not provide their identity.

    Mabuja, est of Hama, the main city of central Syria, is mainly inhabited by the Shiite Ismaili group considered as ''heretic'' by the Islamic State. Mabuja is some 20 km from Salamiya, the so-called capital of Ismailis in Syria. Several Sunnis from the region have also been kidnapped and killed, according to the sources. (ANSAmed)
