50 soldier's of Syria's 417 Division were beheaded and their heads put on poles.
Jihadists from the Islamic State group have killed at least 50 Syrian soldiers in an ambush, summarily executing most of them after their capture, a monitoring group says.
The assault in Raqa province, the jihadists' Euphrates valley stronghold, came amid their fiercest assault yet on Damascus-held territory.
The deaths added to 74 already killed in the offensive across the north and northeast, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Friday (local time).
"At least 50 soldiers were ambushed, some of them were killed in fighting but most of them were beheaded," Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman said.
IS militants claimed the toll was as high as 75.
