On Saturday, a prisoner swap took place between Afghani groups fighting alongside the Syrian regime and batallions of the armed opposition in Daraa, in which four women and one man imprisoned by regime forces were swapped for the release of Afghani fighters.
The five detainees released by the Syrian regime are from Bosra al-Hareer in rural Daraa.
The operation took place in the town of Malihat al-‘Atsh.
The Afghani fighters were captured on 20/4/2015 in Bosra al-Hareer in an attempt by Afghani militias to take control of the town at that time.
The batallion which captured them published an interview with the four prisoners on 23/2/2016, in order to dispel rumours that they had been handed to an international body.
