The sheikh did not clarify what charges exactly and whether ISIS is simply demanding the release of all Muslim, Syrian female detainees.One of the conditions is for the Lebanese Army to open the road to Wadi Hmeid, Masri told The Daily Star after the press conference, noting that ISIS is not calling for the removal of checkpoints, but is demanding that the Lebanese Army opens the road from Wadi Hmeid to the outskirts.In another condition to the pledge, Masri said that ISIS is demanding the release of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's ex-wife Saja al-Dulaimi, and Ola al-Oqaily, the wife of ISIS commander Anas Sharkas. The families of the captives, however, were unsettled by the absence of official confirmation from ISIS that Masri was tasked by the group.
