Iranian military in Syria | “Abu al-Fadl al-Abbas” militia stores weapons and missiles in new warehouses, near archaeological site in west Euphrates
Deir Ezzor province: SOHR sources in west Euphrates region have reported that the IRGC-backed militia of “Abu al-Fadl al-Abbas” has transferred large amounts of weapons, ammunition and long and medium-range missiles, brought previously from Iraq to Syria, to recently-established warehouses near the monuments of Al-Shabli on the outskirts of al-Mayadeen city in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor. It is worth noting that these warehouses have been established in a valley with an entrench containing camouflaged cement champers with only one gate for the entry and exit, while soil barriers and bulwarks have been set near them with the aim to protect these warehouses from strikes by Israel and the International Coalition.
On April 5, reliable SOHR sources in west Euphrates region in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor confirmed that a new weapons shipment of four trucks carrying short and medium-rang missiles affiliated to Iranian-backed factions entered Syria from Iraq, via the informal crossing of al-Sekak in near al-Bokamal city on the Syria-Iraq border. It is worth noting that the trucks were escorted by three Iranian military vehicles and a vehicle of the 4th Division. According to SOHR sources, two trucks were unloaded in weapons warehouses of the Afghani militia of “Liwa Fatemiyoun” in Ayyash area in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor, while the two other trucks headed to the Iranian-backed militias’ positions in the eastern countryside of Al-Raqqah.
