IS Releases Kurdish Shepherd After Family Pays Ransom

ERBIL — Islamic State (IS) militants on Saturday released a shepherd in the disputed Kurdish district of Khanaqin, Diyala province, after receiving a large amount of money from his family as a ransom.

The shepherd went missing in the border village of Narin, in Qara Tapa subdistrict, around two months ago and later his family was contacted by IS jihadists, demanding money in exchange for releasing the Kurdish civilian.

Speaking to BasNews, Wasfi Tamimi, the head of local administration in Qara Tapa sub-district, noted that the young man, identified as Sabah Nuri, was freed after his family paid $50,000 as a ransom, which came after two months of negotiations between sides in this regard.

The Islamic State has abducted dozens of shepherds in Iraq since the beginning of this year and often releases them in exchange for a large amount of money as a ransom. However, in the first quarter of this year Iraqi security forces found bodies of four shepherds, beheaded by the extremist group after being kidnapped from rural areas in Nineveh province.
