Militants from ISIS terrorist group have attacked a refugee camp in Syria’s town of Al-Bahra and captured 130 families totaling 700 people, Lt. Gen. Vladimir Savchenko, head of the Russian Center for Syrian reconciliation, said Monday.

“Taking advantage of complete impunity, ISIS militants attacked a refugee camp in the Al-Bahra area on October 13, capturing 130 families of about 700 people, and transporting them to Hajin,” Savchenko said at a news briefing.

The general stressed that the abducted civilians were de-facto taken hostage and could be used by terrorists as a “human shield” to protect the militants from the possible attack by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) advancing towards the last ISIS-occupied areas on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.
