A day earlier, ISIS cells abducted and executed an alleged informant of the SAA in the vicinity of the town of al-Sukhnah in the eastern Homs countryside.
The group also released photos showing the execution of four men in eastern Homs. The men were accused of spying for the Syrian intelligence. One was beheaded while the others were shot in the head.
