Villagers and members of al-Shaitaat tribes in Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr have reportedly joined the army in its fight against the ISIL Takfiri militants.

According to Syria’s local sources, the tribesmen and villagers have formed a new unit, named “The Popular Resistance Front” (or Jabhat Al-Muqaawama Al-Sha’biyya).

The move comes in the wake of the ISIL atrocities against local people, especially tribesmen in Dayr al-Zawr.

Shaitaat tribes, which live along the Euphrates River, had earlier joined the armed opposition against the Syrian government.

However, they changed their positions after the ISIL killed over 900 of their members.

Reports say the Takfiri militants kidnapped women and children, beheaded and crucified young men and hanged those who opposed the ISIL's self-proclaimed caliph, Ibrahim al-Samerai also known as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The ISIL terrorists currently control some parts of Syria and Iraq. They have been committing heinous crimes in the captured areas, including mass executions and beheadings.

More than 200,000 people have died so far in the conflict in Syria, according to the UN sources.

Over 7.2 million Syrians have also become internally displaced due to the ongoing Syrian crisis, according to the UN.
