The Islamic State (IS) insurgents on Saturday executed eight civilians in Deir ez-Zor province, east of Syria, a report said.
Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that the incident took place in the region of Ma’dan, northwestern Deir ez-Zor where the sleeper cells of the extremist group killed eight civilians.
According to the report, despite the full victory over the militant group, the IS sleeper cells have continued to carry out terrorist activities against security forces and civilians.
Other reports said that the jihadists earlier on Thursday executed a man over his alleged links with the US-led international coalition to combat the Islamic State.
