“ISIS executed eight men in Deir Hafer in the east of Aleppo province” on Saturday because they belonged to rebel groups that had fought against the jihadists as well as Assad’s forces, it said. ISIS then “crucified them in the main square of the village, where their bodies will remain for three days,” the Britain-based monitor said.
ISIS first emerged in Syria’s war in late spring last year and was initially welcomed by some rebels. But subsequent jihadist abuses quickly turned the Syrian opposition, including Islamists, against ISIS. (AFP)
