Ex-IS detainee remembers captivity when she saw her son killed

DAMASCUS, Syria – A Syrian woman freed from imprisonment says Islamic State fighters held her and more than two dozen other women and children in various hiding places for nearly three months.

She says they were once held captive in a moving car for over 12 hours without knowing where they were going.

Najwa Abu Ammar from the southern province of Sweida says the militants did not torture her, but fed her sporadically, insulting and beating the children.

When her ordeal was nearing its end, eight-year-old Najwa Abu Ammar was shot dead by IS fighters during a Syrian military operation to free the hostages held since July. Her son Rafaat died in her arms.

His cousin Qusay, 13, was shot and bled for five hours before his death.
