ISIL militants are notorious for their numerous atrocities committed against civilians in Syria and neighboring Iraq, including summary executions and beheadings.

The tribespeople discovered the mass grave after they recently returned to their villages, after months of displacement. The Observatory said that hundreds more members of the Shaitat tribe are still missing.
