Any Lebanese inmates previously held in Palmyra Prison were moved by the Syrian authorities to another prison before the ISIS's militants arrived and took over the Syrian city, General Security chief Maj. Gen. Abbas Ibrahim said Friday."In our calls with the relevant officials in Syria ... they stressed that they had moved all the prisoners [before ISIS arrived]".Although the Syrian government has never officially acknowledged holding any Lebanese captives, dozens were believed to be kept in ambiguous circumstances inside the prison, with their identities kept from the public. The servicemen were kidnapped during deadly clashes between the two groups and the Lebanese Army in Arsal last August.
