ISIS kills hostage from Syria's Sweida, local media says
About 30 hostages are still held by ISIS
ISIS fighters have executed one of dozens of Druze hostages abducted from Syria's southern province of Sweida last month, a Syrian news outlet and a monitor said on Sunday.
The extremist group murdered the 19-year-old male student on Thursday.
The killing came after the militants kidnapped more than 30 people, mostly women and children, from a village in Sweida during a deadly rampage on July 25, the head of the Sweida24 news website, Nour Radwan, said.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, said it was the first execution since the kidnappings.
