Deir Ez-Zor, SMART

On Monday, unknown airstrikes hit the Syrian government forces’ and supporting militias’ outposts in the village of al-Hari in the city of al-Bukamal,120 kilometers, east of Deir Ez-Zor, Eastern Syria. The airstrikes killed dozens of members of the government forces and militias.

Loyalist activists reported on social media that unknown airstrikes hit the al-Hashd al-Sha’bi Iraqi militias, Iranian militias, and Afghan Fatemiyoun militia, killing and injuring dozens of members.  

French news agency AFP reported that the death toll reached 38 members although the pro-Iran channel of al-Mayadeen admitted killing  20 members, who are called “resistance factions” were on the Syrian-Iraqi border.

The Syrian government said that the airstrikes killed an undefined number of government forces’ members. The Syrian government accused the International Coalition against the Islamic State of responsibility for the bombing.  

Reuters news agency reported Major Josh Jack, the spokesperson of the Central American Leadership saying,”the American-led International Coalition has not conducted any airstrikes near al-Bukamal.”

Iranian militias and Russian troops support the Syrian government forces in Eastern Syria. The Syrian government forces control the Western Euphrates, while the SDF, which is backed by the International Coalition, control Eastern Euphrates and most of oil and gas fields in the Deir Ez-Zor governorate, Eastern Syria.
