The arrival of new reinforcement comes three days after an attack inflicted many casualties among the Iranian forces in the area. SOHR sources reported at that time that unidentified aircraft targeted M’eizileh base which is under the control of Iranian forces and Iranian-backed militias in Al-Bokamal countryside near Iraq-Syria border.
The attack, which took place on Saturday at 22:30, came a few days after bringing in military reinforcement to the base from the 47th brigade affiliated to the Iranian-backed militias. The same militias has headquarters in Al-Bokamal and Al-Hirri.
According to SOHR sources, the attack killed seven Iranian-backed militiamen and resulted in destruction of headquarters inside the base. The death toll is expected to rise because of the serious injuries of some casualties.
