Mass Grave Uncovered in Deir-ez-Zor

A mass grave has been uncovered in the town of Keshkia, in Deir-ez-Zor province, containing dozens of bodies executed by terrorists from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).


Locals from Keshkia, in the eastern countryside of  Deir-ez-Zor found the mass grave in the desert.


Local sources told a SANA reporter on Wednesday that the mass grave contained citizens of the Sheitat tribe of the town and there was evidence of shooting on the bodies, while others had been beheaded.


The grave was uncovered by locals who returned to their village four months after being forced to leave by ISIS.
