Islamic State militants

The IS militants have been actively carrying out attacks against Syrian soldiers and pro-government troops in the desert in the remote eastern countryside Deir al-Zour Province and the desert of Homs Province.

A total of 309 Syrian and pro-government soldiers have been killed by similar attacks in the desert since March, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The IS militants have largely been defeated in their key bastions in northern and northeastern Syria.
