Iranian military in Syria | IRGC-backed militia sets factory for manufacturing ammunition and rocket launchpads in eastern al-Raqqah

Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that al-Nujabaa Movement which is affiliated to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps started to prepare a factory for manufacturing mortars, launchpads of surface-to-surface missiles and bullets of various calibers. The factory is located in a farm belonging to people who are living abroad, seized previously by Iranian-backed militias, on the outskirts of Maadan city in the eastern countryside of al-Raqqah province.

 

On October 6, very reliable SOHR sources in areas under the control of Iranian-backed militias in west Euphrates region reported the arrival of a new weapons shipment in Syria from Iraq, as the new shipment entered Syria via an unofficial border crossing run by Iranian-backed militias at night. The recently-arrived weapons shipment was taken to al-Mayadeen city in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, then to the archaeological fortress of al-Rahba on the outskirts of the city where the weapons were stored.

 

According to SOHR sources, the new weapons shipment included Iranian-made short-range missiles and rocket launchpads. It is worth noting that the Iranian-backed militias rarely brought in weapons shipments at night, as most of the previous shipments entered Syria at daytime.
