Syria, Isis fights an internal war between Hasaka and Deir Ezzor

Isis is fighting an internal war in eastern Syria. The murders of traitors to the Islamic State by their former comrades between Hasaka and Deir Ezzor increase

Isis in Eastern Syria is also fighting an internal war: the one against traitors. In the past few hours in Hawaij (Deir Ezzor) a former militiaman of the Islamic State was murdered. This seems to have been responsible for the collection of zakat, the ritual offering, in the area. According to local sources, however, some time ago he fled to Turkey with the crate, only to return after the SDF had regained full control of the region. The man is only the latest former jihadist recently killed by his comrades for betraying the group. Before him, in fact, some former leaders, who had renounced the jihad abandoning or selling their men, had lost their lives.

The modus operandi confirms that there are ad hoc killer cells. The SDF, however, are hunting them

Isis traitors are always killed with the same technique: an IED or a commando of armed men aboard a motorcycle. Just like when the targets are public or military personalities in eastern Syria. This suggests that the Islamic State has killer cells, each with its own list of victims to eliminate. Not surprisingly, the SDF have long launched targeted operations to find and neutralize them. Some elements, in fact, were recently captured between Hasaka and Deir Ezzor. The latest raid took place only a few days ago. The wave of murders, in fact, has dropped dramatically, although it has not yet completely stopped.
