The UN  said on Wednesday  it has reports that Islamic State (ISIL) militants  were executing people perceived as cooperating with rebel fighters in Deir al-Zor governorate in eastern Syria.

The UN human rights boss, Michelle Bachelet, voiced deep concern for 7,000 civilians  trapped in the area during a news conference in Geneva.

She said the civilians  were trapped between Islamic State fighters preventing them from leaving Deir al-Zor and air strikes by a U.S.-led coalition.

“We also have reports of ISIL executing people perceived as cooperating with SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) or other parties to the conflict,” she said,.

She added   that civilians were being used as “pawns and bargaining chips” in the conflict.
