ISIL is reportedly to release 29 of the 220 Syrian Assyrians it abducted in northeastern Syria earlier in February.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the court of the terrorist group on Saturday exonerated the Christian Assyrians.
The Assyrian Christian leaders have conducted talks with the ISIL leadership through mediators to secure the release of the abducted members of the community, SOHR said.
The 29 Assyrian Christians are part of the 220 members of the community, which the terrorists kidnapped on February 23 when storming the town of Tal Tamr.
The terrorist group has been committing horrific crimes in all regions under its control in Iraq and Syria.
Hundreds of Assyrians have already abandoned their villages to avoid bloody clashes.
On Saturday, hundreds of Assyrians marched in the Lebanese capital Beirut in solidarity with those of the community kidnapped by the ISIL in Syria.
The marchers carried placards reading, "Assyrians are the indigenous people of Mesopotamia," "We demand action from the United Nations," and "Save the Christians in the Middle East."
