Military build-up | Iranian Forces and proxy militias are on high alert from Syria-Iraqi border to Al-Mayadeen
Deir Ezzor Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: SOHR activists have monitored all Iranian forces and their proxy militias being put on high alert in areas under their control in Deir Ezzor. The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) have brought in military reinforcement from their positions in Palmyra city and the eastern countryside of Homs to the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.
The recent military build-up also included the boosting of posts and checkpoints in the cities, towns and villages of the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.
On the other hand, reliable sources have informed SOHR that large number of militiamen of the Lebanese Hezbollah have been transported to Iraq, via Deir Ezzir, in order to participate in repressing protests started a few days ago in southern Iraq.
