Unidentified aircraft strikes Iranian militia sites in Syria

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that violent explosions resounded in the farms area near Syria’s city of Al-Mayadin in the countryside of Deir ez-Zor, as a result of bombing by an unidentified aircraft on Iranian militia sites in the western Euphrates region.

Explosions were also heard at the Syrian-Iraqi border, near Al-Bukamal, as a result of bombing by an unknown aircraft.

No information has been received about casualties so far.

The sources of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights had reported last week that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards militia had moved Iranian-made “Burkan H2” missiles from a militia’s weapons depot near the archaeological area of al-Shibli in the Al-Mayadin desert, east of Deir ez-Zor, and transported them via trucks.

The Syrian Observatory had documented two weeks ago, the killing of 3 people from the Iraqi “Popular Mobilization” militia, as a result of air targeting at the Syrian-Iraqi border.
