Deir al-Zor - SMART

The Syrian government forces recruits members of local militias supported by Iran in the city of Albu Kamal in Deir al-Zor, Eastern Syria.

On Monday, local sources reported that the Syrian government forces started the process of recruiting people from Albu Kamal for the Syrian government forces. The recruits included members of the National Defense, the Military Security Shield Forces, and Iraqi and Afghani militias supported by Iran.

The sources added that the Syrian government forces started registering the names of members in order to recruit those at the age of conscription. The sources assumed the Syrian government forces will offer the other recruits volunteer positions.

The sources said that young men from Albu Kamal recently joined loyalist militias, including the Zainebiyoun Brigade, the Fatemiyoun Brigade, and the Iraqi Hezbollah Battalions, which are all supported by Iran. The men received salaries between 150 and 300 US dollars.

The sources added that in recent months, the Iranian-supported militias opened volunteering opportunities in Albu Kamal, and young men joined the militias to avoid conscription into the Syrian government forces. Several young men joined the militias because they needed money, according to the sources.

The National Defense, Lebanese Hezbollah, and Iranian militias have recently been clashing  with other military forces in Albu Kamal and other militia-controlled areas in Deir al-Zor.

Thousands of Iranian-supported foreign militia members support the Syrian government forces in their battles against other military forces in Syria, especially in the Deir al-Zor governorate, where most of the militias are based.
