They said last night members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) pulled out of the area after local rebels on Monday surrounded their headquarters in the city. The sources claimed ISIS, which has been under attack for days in the Syrian regions of Idlib, Aleppo and Raqqa, has now deployed outside Dayr az Zor.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights quoted local medical sources as saying that over 30 al Qaida militants died over the past few hours in the north-western region of Idlib in clashes between al Qaida fighters and local rebels. The dead militants are all reportedly non-Syrian members of ISIS.
Al Qaida militants have executed overnight 50 Syrian activists they had detained in Aleppo, activists in the northern Syrian city told ANSA on Tuesday in a Skype interview.
The prisoners were killed at a former eye hospital in Aleppo, the activists said.
