SOHR activists have reported loud explosions in rural Albu Kamal town in rural Deir ez-Zor, as a result of airstrikes by an unknown aircraft, targeting Iranian militias’ positions with more than ten raids west of Albu Kamal. No human or material losses have been reported so far.
On November 14, Syrian Observatory activists monitored several airstrikes by unidentified jets on Muhassan desert which is under the control of regime forces and Iranian-backed militias. Plums of smoke were seen in the targeted site, but no casualties were reported so far.
It is not known yet if the jets were Israeli or affiliated to the International Coalition. It is worth noting that the jets headed to the airspace of SDF-controlled areas just after the attack.
SOHR activists had reported hearing loud explosions in Al-Bokamal area, which is controlled by Iranian forces and loyal militias in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor. According to Observatory sources, the explosions were caused by a rocket attack targeted the positions and posts of the Iranian-backed militias in the area of Al-Sikkeh on the outskirts of Al-Bokamal. The attack left six Iranian-backed militiamen dead in addition to the destruction of many vehicles.
It is not known whether the attack was carried out by Israeli airstrikes or surface-to-surface missiles fired by International Coalition forces stationed on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.
