“The family’s military wing kidnapped several Syrians. We are not afraid of anyone,” Abu Ali al-Meqdad said on behalf of the family.
“There are over 20 FSA members kidnapped in Lebanon,” he added.
He said the tribes of the eastern Bekaa valley such as Shamas, Zaiter, Nasreddine and Dandash are all working together and will reveal their “big catch” on Thursday morning.
