Asking for levies | ISIS members attack SDF oil field in Deir Ezzor countryside

Deir Ezzor province: ISIS members have attacked Al-Sabihan oil field in the north-eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor province, threatening to kill the workers if oil field investors do not pay levies, according to SOHR sources.

On December 2, SOHR activists documented the death of ten workers in Al-Kharatah oil field and the injury of at least two others due to an IED explosion in their bus in the south-western countryside of Deir Ezzor where ISIS cells are prevalent.
