ISIS abducts hundreds of civilians in eastern Syria

Fighters of the Islamic State (ISIS) raided a displacement camp Hajin in eastern Syria and abducted "more than 100 families" amid a major counterattack against the US-led offensive in the area, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Saturday.

Relatives of ISIS defectors and of jihadists killed in fighting are also among the kidnaped civilians, which were then taken to one of the few remaining pockets of territory controlled by the extremist organization. According to the report, a number of fighters of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) died while trying to defend the camp from advancing jihadists for several hours.
