Christian community now a ghost town

In the al-Mayadin desert near Deir ez-Zor, ISIS executed 33 people "with sharp tools" on Wednesday a conflict monitoring group claimed, as ISIS is increasingly limited in its movements and is being squeezed out of major population centers in Syria.

In a morning execution in the eastern Syrian countryside, the group killed dozens between the ages of 18 and 25 years old, reported the United Kingdom -based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), which has an extensive network of sources on the ground in Syria.

It's the largest mass execution Daesh has carried out so far in 2017.

A monitoring group says ISIS killed dozens execution-style on Wednesday. AWhether those killed were rebels, Syrian government officials or militia allies remains unknown.

No less than 31 other people were wounded in the attack, report said.

Uttar Pradesh: Ten year-old forest girl shows improvement in health
Mr Yadav told the media that the girl seemed comfortable with the monkeys and screeched when he tried to rescue her. The Times reported the girl is eight years old, although it's unclear how authorities could know the girl's age.

ISIS claimed responsibility in a statement released on Twitter and tweeted by several ISIS supporters.

The jihadist group continues to lose ground in Syria and Iraq, thanks to military forces fighting them in both countries.

Almost three years since the group's elusive leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared a self-styled Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, ISIS is reeling from losses across its so-called "caliphate".

The SDF forces are attempting to isolate ISIS in Raqqa, encircling it on all sides, and the campaign has accelerated as Iraqi forces make progress in the US -backed assault on Mosul in northern Iraq.

The Syria war began in 2011, when peaceful protests demanding democratic reforms were brutall crushed by regime forces.
