Mass-Grave of More ISIL Victims Found in Deir Ezzur

The corpses of a large number of victims of the ISIL terrorist group were discovered in a mass grave in one of the terrorists' prisons in Eastern Deir Ezzur.

The Baladi News Website reported that the residents of the town of al-Sha’afeh in Eastern Deir Ezzur found the mass grave in a home that was used by the ISIL as jail.

It noted that since the ISIL has used their house as its prison, it is possible that terrorists before withdrawing from the region have executed the civilians.

In a relevant development late in March, the bodies of over 300 victims of the ISIL and the US air raids, including those of slain women and children, were discovered in mass-graves and from under the rubles of destroyed buildings in Raqqa.

The Kurdish-language Hawar News quoted al-Khamis as saying that the corpses of 304 people had been unearthed from a mass-grave in Fakhikheh region in Southern Raqqa since early January.

He added that most of the bodies belonged to the civilians, including women and children, noting that some of the victims had been executed.

Meantime, media activists reported that bodies of several civilians, most of them women and children, were pulled out of the debris in al-Adkhar and al-Ta’aminat districts of Raqqa in the past few days.

They said the corpses belonged to the people killed by the ISIL terrorists or in the US coalition airstrikes on Raqqa.
