Rebels affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, executed three members of the Syrian opposition's Free Syrian Army in the city of Deir ez-Zor on Saturday, activists said.

The opposition activist group Syrian Revolution Youth Coordinatorship said in a written statement that ISIL rebels captured al-Muhasan, al-Buamr and al-Bulil regions of Deir ez-Zor from the Free Syrian Army.

The group carried out summary executions of Free Syrian Army military council members Hassan al-Hafidh, Sair al-Jaddih and Yaser al-Mutlaq and threw their bodies to the Euphrates River, the activists said.

ISIL has made headlines since June 10 when it seized neighboring Iraq's second-largest city Mosul and soon afterwards took near-complete control of the northern Iraqi cities of Tikrit and Tal Afar.
