Deir al-Zor - SMART

An unknown warplane bombed Iraqi and Iranian militias’ bases in the Deir al-Zor governorate, Eastern Syria.

On Sunday, sources reported to SMART that on Saturday night, an unknown warplane bombed headquarters of the al-Fatemiyoun Militia in the al-Thalathat area southwest of the city of al-Bukamal, and the desert, eastern Deir al-Zor that includes a military base of Iraqi and Iranian militias.

The bombings hit areas in northwestern al-Bukamal that include a base of the Zainabiyoun Militia.

The sources added that the al-Quds Hospital received seven injured fighters of the Zainabiyoun Militia and Iraqi Hezbollah Militia. The sources noted that most of the injured sustained critical injuries.

The sources said that the Iranian militias vacated their bases as fighters deployed between buildings.

On May 6, 2020, unknown warplanes bombed 25 bases of Iranian and Iraqi militias in Deir al-Zor.

Earlier, unknown warplanes bombed bases suspected to belong to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards that supports the Syrian government in the al-Bukamal area.

Frequent Israeli bombings hit Iranian backed militias’ bases in Syria. On Jan. 15, 2019, Israel demanded Iran to leave Syria. Israel Katz, the Isreli Intelligence and Transportation minister said that Israel is involved in a comprehensive war against Iran and that it will not allow Iranian militias to remain in Syria.
