ISIS has killed at least 120 of its own fighters, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The human rights group said that ISIS killed 116 of its own militants that had joined the terror group but wants to return home. 

Four more ISIS fighters were also killed on other charges.

Syrian Observatory for Human Rights director Rami Adburrahman told The Independent, “We can confirm that 120 fighters have been killed by ISIS, but from our sources on the ground we believe that over 200 have actually been killed.”

Al Jazeera reports that the ISIS members were killed in Deir Ezzor, Raqqa and Hasakeh since November. 

The Syrian Observatory for Human rights also reported that ISIS has killed almost 2,000 civilians since it rose to power six months ago.
