Mass grave found in Syria’s Deir Ezzor

The bodies of scores of Syrian people killed by the ISIL Takfiri militants have been discovered in a mass grave in  Syria’s eastern province of Deir Ezzor.

Press TV reports: The corpses of 70 citizens were discovered by the families of the victims in al-Bahra village in the eastern province on Monday.

According to local sources, most of the bodies belonged to the members of the Shaitat Sunni tribe that picked up arms against the ISIL militants in the eastern province in the summer.

A similar mass grave was discovered near the al-Kashkiyeh village in the east of Deir Ezzor on October 17.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that 230 bodies, which also belonged to the members of the Shaitat Sunni tribe, were found in the mass grave.

The UK-based opposition group said on Sunday that the ISIL Takfiri group executed 1,878 people in Syria between June 28 when it announced its ‘caliphate’ and December 27.
