Iran’s military in Syria | Iranian-backed militias bring in weapons from west Euphrates to positions in al-Raqqah

As Iranian-backed militias continue their hectic movements across Syria, reliable SOHR sources have confirmed that trucks belonging to Iranian-backed militias transported weapons and ammunition, including medium-range Iranian-made missiles, from ware houses in Athar al-Shabli area in al-Mayadeen desert in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor to the militias’ positions in Maadan in al-Raqqah desert. It is worth noting that the trucks were escorted by guards of the Iranian-backed militias.

 

This development coincides with the heavy attacks on Iranian-backed militias in the recent time.

 

On November 25, Observatory sources reported that Iranian-backed militias brought in the second batch of military reinforcement in November to their base in Habbouba village between the villages of Khafsa and Maskanah, east of Aleppo, which was established recently on the bank of Euphrates river, opposite SDF-held areas on the other bank of the river.

 

According to SOHR sources, trucks loaded with Iranian-made missiles and other military and logistical equipment arrived at the base on that day.

 

A day earlier, SOHR activists monitored that the United States forces stationed at al-Tanaf base in the 55-kilometre zone on Syria-Iraq-Jordan border triangle, launched four long-range missiles towards the west of its base. However, it was not known if the missiles hit Iran-backed militias’ positions or ISIS hideouts in Syrian desert and its surroundings.

 

This came with flights by fighter jets of the International Coalition in the airspace of the 55-kilometre zone.
