ISIS terrorists say they will release hundreds of Christians they took hostage in Syria in exchange for $30 million.
Fox News reported the terror group’s demand amounts to $100,000 per person. ISIS seized between 250 and 300 Christians in February from roughly 35 northern villages in Syria.
Syrian Sunni Muslims acting as third-party brokers are speaking with both ISIS members and Assyrian leadership but aren’t hopeful of coming up with the money any time soon.
“They know we cannot come up with this kind of money so they are hoping other groups and countries will come up with the money,” one source involved in the deal said, Fox News reported.
So far, 23 hostages have been released.
