The Al-Qaeda splinter group ISIS has stepped up its offensive against Islamist rebels in the eastern city of Deir al-Zor, through a blockade and the severing of electricity and water supplies.ISIS announced late last week that it intended to besiege the city of Deir al-Zor, as local activists reported dwindling supplies of food and water, while rebels based in the city vowed to repulse any attack.In the city of Raqqa, meanwhile, the Observatory reported a rare instance of regime military action against ISIS targets.More than 2,000 civilians have been killed since January in a regime aerial campaign targeting Aleppo province, most of which is under rebel control.Local activists in Aleppo said a total of six airstrikes and 11 barrel bombs targeted the city of Aleppo and rural areas Sunday.
