The Islamic State (ISIS) executed eight kidnapped civilians in Deir ez-Zor Governorate over the weekend.
ISIS carried out the executions in the Badiya al-Tebni region of northwestern Deir ez-Zor.
Civil sources told the agency that the gunmen “executed eight civilians from the Maadan region.”
This is not the first time that ISIS sleeper cells have attacked and executed civilians after kidnapping them along the roads in Homs, Raqqa, Hassakeh, and Deir ez-Zor.
In addition to the executions, ISIS has also carried out several attacks across eastern and central Syria this past week, as they take advantage of the current coronavirus outbreak.
