A car bomb exploded in the area of Shehel, which is considered a stronghold for the al-Nusra Front in Deir Ezzur, leaving dozens killed, including one of al-Nusra commanders. The opposing UK-based Syrian Observatory accused ISIL of carrying out the detonation, yet the group denied its responsibility and noted that the car bomb was planned to target its militants, Al-Manar reported. In Asharna in the Eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, ISIL also detonated a car bomb, targeting a main FSA garrison. In Raqqa, the commanders of ISIL legislated murdering al-Nusra and FSA members. As a result, ISIL detonated a number of houses in the province, claiming that their owners cooperate with al-Nusra and FSA. ISIL also killed an Islamic State commander in the Southern countryside of Hamah.
