Deir Ez Zour, Syria

Photos show the abandoned headquarters of ISIS on al-Intilak st. in central Deir Ez Zour. The militants left the building, which was originally used by a consumer organization known as al-Qabban, for fear of them being targeted by international air strikes. However, ISIS still has control over the city and their religious police drive around the area enforcing sharia law by monitoring dress codes, making sure shops are closed at prayer times, and enforcing a smoking ban, among other things. The video also shows a former research center also used by IS and now abandoned.
