BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels have released an Argentinian woman from one of their prisons in Idlib after kidnapping her in 2016, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said on Sunday.

The Argentinian woman, Sandy Roxana Baba, had reportedly entered Syria’s Idlib province in 2016, when she was kidnapped by an unnamed jihadist group.

The jihadist group demanded ransom for her release, asking the Argentinian woman’s family for a large sum of money to secure her freedom.

She was officially released on Sunday, December 2nd after the Turkish regime negotiated with the jihadist group in the Idlib Governorate to release the woman from their prison.

The woman is now in Turkey and will be heading back to Argentina.
