The Islamic State (ISIS) killed a person by beheading him and leaving his head in front of the municipality of Al-Shuhayl in the Deir-ez-Zor countryside, which is under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). According to local sources from Deir-ez-Zor, an unidentified, beheaded person was found near the Al-Shuhayl municipality building on Tuesday morning.
According to the sources, ISIS claimed responsibility for the killing through a piece of paper that was left near the severed head, on which it was written that the murdered man was a collaborator with the regime and had fought ISIS in the past.
The activity of ISIS has increased significantly in the recent period in the areas controlled by SDF forces, despite the security campaigns carried out by SDF, which did not succeed in limiting the attacks and operations of the Islamic State.
