BEIRUT: Daesh fighters killed at least seven regime loyalists in eastern Syria on Saturday, the latest in a series of deadly extremist attacks, a Britain-based war monitor reported.
“Seven members of the National Defense Forces, a pro-regime militia, were killed in clashes with an IS sleeper cell” in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, using a different acronym for Daesh.
Daesh gunmen wounded several other militia fighters, meaning the death toll may climb, it added.
