Taking advantage of Friday prayers, ISIS called on locals of the Eastern city of Deir ez-Zor to join their ‘Jihadi brothers’ in their ‘Holy War’ in both Aleppo and Al-Hasakah.

ISIS is caught on fierce battles against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Al-Hasakah, located in the far north-eastern corner of Syria, where it was recently repelled outside the provincial capital, losing large numbers of fighters.

In Aleppo northern countryside, the world-listed terror group is battling with rival rebel groups, most prominently, the al-Qaeda Syrian branch, Jabhet al-Nusra.

ISIS desperate appeal came after suffering heavy losses in both fronts.

Local activists in Deir ez-Zor say the life conditions in the ISIS-held city continue to be dire. Power shortage, rising prices, arbitrary arrest and even summary executions have become common manifestations and practices.

Recently, the number of ISIS Hisbah (religious police) in both Deir ez-Zor and Al-Raqqa has remarkably decreased as many of them have been sent to other fronts.
