DAMASCUS, Syria, The Syrian authorities have uncovered seven mass graves, with hundreds of bodies, in a former Daesh stronghold in eastern Syria, it was reported on Tuesday.

Hundreds of unidentified bodies were found in the mass graves, in the city of Abu Kamal, in the south-eastern countryside of Deir al-Zour province, in eastern Syria, according to the report.

The report said, the bodies belong to those who were executed by the Daesh, when the group controlled the area.

So far, the civil defence units, in cooperation with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, have unearthed 101 bodies, most of which had marks of torture, said the report, adding that, work is underway to unearth the rest.

The Syrian army captured Abu Kamal from the Daesh in 2017, as the area was a key bastion of the terror-designated group, near the Iraqi border.
