According to unconfirmed reports March 31 from a STRATFOR source linked to Palestinian Islamic Jihad, seven Estonians kidnapped March 23 in the Bekaa Valley are in Syria. The Syrians suspected the foreigners because they were in Syria during protests, traveling to places rarely visited by tourists, and because they were riding bicycles, which allowed them to explore Syrian installations and side roads. Syrian officials did not want to apprehend the Estonians in Syria, so they asked them about their next destination and waited for them there. Local Syrian agents, most likely members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, kidnapped them and brought them back to Syria for questioning. The Estonians will soon be returned to Lebanon and released from there, the source said.
