‘Those abducted, all of whom are Sunnis, include women, children and family members of pro-regime fighters,’ Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.

The IS attack on Deir Ezzor on Saturday killed at least 85 civilians and 50 regime forces, the monitor said.
ISIS posted a statement confirming they had launched a ‘massive assault on Syrian regime positions’ in the city of Deir Ezzor.
