The Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) responded Tuesday to recent attacks against its forces in Deir al-Zor province by displaying the heads of three tribesmen who took up arms against them, an anti-regime monitor said Tuesday.ISIS militants and tribesmen clashed on the outskirts of the village, it added, after tribal fighters withdrew from al-Jurdi Monday and ISIS seized the village.The Observatory said a car bomb in the town of Ashara overnight targeted an ISIS headquarters, killing and wounding ISIS fighters.ISIS swept through much of Deir al-Zor province in July, but its non-aggression agreements with locals broke down after ISIS detained members of the Sheiatat tribe, and a series of hit-and-run attacks against ISIS have taken place in recent weeks.Separately, regime airstrikes targeted ISIS positions in Deir al-Zor province and killed five fighters, one of them a Moroccan, in the village of Busayra, the Observatory said.
