(Iraq Now News)- ISIS released early Saturday six hostages who were held captives since the attack over Sweida three months ago.

ISIS militias staged multiple suicide attacks in Sweida and overran nearby villages in southwestern Syria on July 25, killing more than 200 people, many of them civilians.

Sweida, which is under state rule, has a mainly Druze community.

Druze authorities and Islamic State have held negotiations for the release of the hostages.
