ARK News… Debra Tice, the mother of the American journalist kidnapped by the Syrian regime, Austin Tice, spoke about the details of her trip to Syria in 2014, and revealed the Syrian regime’s conditions for releasing Tice.

Debra Tice said in an interview with the British Newspaper the Times that she went to Syria alone, took a taxi from Beirut to Damascus, and stayed in a place recommended by the driver.

According to the newspaper, during that visit, Debra Tice received a message stating, “We will not meet with the mother, and we want an official with an appropriate title to discuss the transfer of Austin Tice. Tice can be released under three conditions.”

Tice added that the conditions for the Syrian regime are as follows: “The United States begins a political rapprochement with the Syrian regime, the sanctions imposed on it are eased, and the American forces stationed in north-eastern Syria are withdrawn.”

Debra Tice revealed that she met with US President Joe Biden in 2022. He instructed her National Security officials to contact the Syrian regime and find out what it wanted in exchange for the release of Austin Tice, but today she is not convinced that any contact was made at all.

The mother of the American journalist stated that the last intelligence information she received from a source from the region in early 2023 led her to believe that Austin was still alive.
