BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – ISIS has executed an entire squad of deserting ranks in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor amid a major battle with US-backed forces on the east Euphrates shore according to pro-coalition sources.

Reports state that the terrorist group executed seven of its jihadist fighters who were attempting to flee the frontline near the town of Ash-Sha’fah (currently controlled by ISIS).

It is not clear whether the militant deserters were captured by their of forces and then killed or shot dead whilst in the midst of escaping the combat zone.

At the present time, US-led coalition partner forces are attempting to seize number of river settlements north and south of Ash-Sha’fah from Islamic State terrorists – key ones being Haijin, Bo Hassan and As-Sosa.

The town of Ash-Sha’fah itself (fortified to the point of representing a fortress) serves as an important stronghold for the now fledgling ISIS presence on the east Euphrates bank.
