BEIRUT — The Islamic State bunch abducted over 400 civilians including women and kids in the wake of capturing new territory in an assault on Syria’s eastern city of Deir Ezzor.
The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Isis killed at least 135 people in the multi-front attack that began on Saturday.
“After their attack on Deir Ezzor (yesterday), ISIS abducted at least 400 civilians from the Al-Baghaliyeh neighbourhood it captured and adjacent areas in the northwest of the city,” the Observatory said.
“Those abducted, all of whom are Sunnis, include women, children and family members of pro-regime fighters,” Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said, adding they were transported to other areas under ISIS control.
The attack on the neighbourhood was carried out with suicide bombers blowing themselves up at positions manned by government forces.
The monitor said at least 42 Isis fighters had been killed in the attack and that fighting was ongoing, with regime forces backed by Russian airstrikes trying to recapture lost ground. It added that regime forces were bringing additional troops and military equipment from elsewhere in the city to the battlefront.
