DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:50 P.M.) – Around a dozen members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) where slaughtered in broad daylight as the Islamic State retook the Al-Jazrah oil field on Thursday, a key site that is located in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.
A series of photos by Amaq Agency covering the incident shows ISIS vehicles gathering for the counter-offensive before overwhelming a handful of positions adjacent to the Al-Jazrah oil field, killing or beheading all captured SDF fighters on the spot.
Viewer discretion is advised:
Despite Amaq Agency hinting to the contrary, the Islamic State has been teamtagged by the SDF and Syrian Arab Army (SAA) over the past two months following two rival anti-ISIS offensives, known as the ‘Big Dawn’ and ‘Al-Jazirah Storm’.
