ISIS savages execute 33 young people in Deir Ezzur
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the ISIS executed 33 people between the ages of 18 to 25 in Badiyeh al-Mayadeen in the Southeastern parts of al-Mayadeen city.
The terrorist group beheaded its victims around a pit which became full of blood after the execution ended.
According to the report, the identity of the victims and if they were civilians or militants is not yet known but it was the biggest execution operations carried out by the ISIL in Syria since the start of the current year.
In a relevant development on Friday, the ISIS executed more than 100 Iraqi civilians in Mosul in Nineveh province, while the terrorists are using hundreds of people as human shields to slow down the advances of Iraqi army troops.
ISIL terrorists had massacred more than 100 people in Western Mosul last Friday, the Iraqi Observatory for Human Rights (IOHR) said in a statement on Wednesday.
The statement, citing unnamed local sources from Mosuls Old City, added that the terrorists killed members of 22 families from the al-Mekkawi area after 22 young men from those families tried to escape the district with the help of a Syrian smuggler.
The smuggler had reached a deal with the young men two months earlier, but the plan was dropped when Iraqi security forces started an operation to liberate the region. ISIL members, having found out about the scheme, executed the young men, their families as well as the smugglers family.
The IOHR statement said the executions were carried out inside public baths in Mekkawi, and 106 corpses were left there for 14 hours before civilian-owned vehicles came and took them away for burial.
