Syria: Iranian prisoners freed

5 years ago27 views

Forty-eight Iranian hostages have been set free by Syrian rebels.

They've been released in exchange for 2,130 civilian prisoners held by the Syrian government.

The Iranians were seized in early August by rebel forces who accused them of being members of Iran's elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps sent to fight for the regime.
