ISIS militants have seized an army position in the Syrian city of Hassakeh, The Observatory for Human Rights said Sunday, following up on recent gains against President Bashar Assad's forces.On Twitter, supporters of ISIS celebrated the army position's "liberation" and posted video footage purporting to show ISIS fighters examining the complex.According to the Observatory, at least 85 regime troops were killed during the ISIS takeover in Raqqa, among them more than 50 who were summarily executed.The regime recaptured Shaar gas field Saturday in Homs province from ISIS, which had captured the field nearly two weeks ago, reportedly killing 270 guards, pro-regime paramilitary and civilian employees.In Aleppo province over the weekend, ISIS fighters also continued their separate clashes with Islamist rebel militias, and the Kurdish YPG militia. The Observatory reported Sunday that 35 Islamist fighters from the province of Idlib defected from their militia and headed for Raqqa, to declare their allegiance to ISIS.
