Kurdish shepherd kidnapped by ISIS militants in Garmian – reporter


SULAIMANI (ESTA) — A Kurdish shepherd was abducted by Islamic State (ISIS) militants in Garmian administration on Monday, Esta Media Network reporter said.

The reporter in Garmian said two ISIS militants riding a motorcycle kidnapped the shepherd in the village of Duraji in the administration.

“The incident took place as the shepherd was grazing his livestock,” he said.

The village is located in the sub-district of Zinana in the Dawda area of Garmian administration.

The kidnapping came two days after another Kurdish shepherd was released by ISIS militants for $250,000.

ISIS remnants continue to be a threat to civilians in the disputed areas claimed by both Baghdad and Erbil.

Despite operations against the group, the militants frequently carry out attacks against security forces and civilians in those areas.
