Jihadists from the Islamic State (ISIS) group have beheaded at least 50 – 75 Syrian soldiers from the 417th Division in an ambush, summarily executing most of them after their capture, then placing their heads on a fence on a busy street where passersby will be able to see them.

The assault in Raqa province, the jihadists’ Euphrates valley stronghold, came amid their fiercest assault yet on Damascus-held territory. The deaths added to 74 already killed in the offensive across the north and northeast, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Friday (local time).
