Ex-Daesh hostages thank Assad for liberation : video

A group of Syrians, who have been freed by army forces from Daesh’s captivity, have expressed their gratitude to President Bashar al-Assad, whose government has been leading the nation’s fight against terrorism.
The Syrians, from the Druze minority community, were taken hostage by Daesh in southern Suwayda Province in late July, but they were freed last week following a counter-terrorism operation by the Syrian army there.
During a meeting in Damascus on Tuesday, the liberated abductees and their families lifted Assad into the air, with one man lifting up the Syrian president on his shoulders, as shown in a video clip released by the al-Watan media outlet.
