Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his wife Asma received 54 women and children, who were recently freed after being kidnapped by militants for three and a half years, at the Presidential Palace in Damascus, Thursday.

The 54 women and children, who were kidnapped and held for three and a half years by militants from the Free Syrian Army (FSA), were recently freed during a prisoner swap between the Syrian government and militant groups.

The civilians were reportedly kidnapped by militants in 2013, when FSA militants attempted to seize several villages in the northern part of the Latakia governorate.
