BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – A Yezidi teenager has been rescued by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in eastern Syria, the latter’s official media wing announced on Sunday.

Citing a report from the head of the Kurdistan Region’s Special Office for Yezidi Abductee Affairs, Hussein Qa’edi, Kurdistan 24 reported that a sixteen-year-old Yezidi boy was rescued during an operation in eastern Deir Ezzor recently.

The Yezidi teenager was identified as Darwish Jassim Hassan of Wardiya in the Sinjar region.

He was reportedly kidnapped by the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) during the terrorist group’s large-scale operation in the Sinjar region in 2014.

Qa’edi added that a total of 3,356 Yezidis have been rescued out of the 6,417 that were kidnapped in 2014.
