With the U.S. military poised to strike, ISIS militants in Syria's Deir al-Zor province have abandoned some of their bases and redeployed their forces to other positions, activists said Wednesday.Abu Osama also said the jihadists had emptied out the former governorate building in Deir al-Zor city, which ISIS was using as its main weapons storage depot in the area.An anti-regime source in Deir al-Zor told The Daily Star that ISIS militants were still being targeted by an informal local resistance, which killed an Egyptian commander with ISIS and several members of the group in an ambush in the border town of Al-Bukamal.Government airstrikes killed some 50 people in the rebel-held city of Talbiseh in Homs this week in an apparent attempt to target a rebel commander, activists said.
