Daesh executing people in Syria's Deir al-Zor: UN
Reuters
GENEVA: The United Nations has reports of Daesh (ISIS) executing people perceived as cooperating with rebel fighters in Deir al-Zor governorate in eastern Syria, the U.N. human rights boss said on Wednesday.

Michelle Bachelet, speaking to a news conference in Geneva, voiced deep concern for 7,000 civilians who she said were trapped between Daesh militants preventing them from leaving Deir al-Zor and airstrikes by a U.S.-led coalition.

"We also have reports of ISIL executing people perceived as cooperating with SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) or other parties to the conflict," she said, adding that civilians were being used as "pawns and bargaining chips" in the conflict.
