A campaign in Syria and Iraq by militants from the Al-Qaeda splinter group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is producing new waves of refugees fleeing the fighting, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Monday.ISIS declared two villages southeast of the city of Deir al-Zor a "military zone" and asked residents to leave the area, the Observatory said.The Observatory said people were now fleeing toward the Syrian city of Al-Bukamal, because of violence.In the city of Raqqa, an ISIS stronghold, further west on the Euphrates, the Observatory reported that a regime airstrike against a government building killed five people and wounded a number of others as employees were heading to work.
