Brought from Iraq to west Euphrates eight days ago | Iranian-backed militias transport weapons to positions in Al-Raqqah desert

SOHR sources have reported that Iranian-backed militias transported a weapon shipment to their positions and pre-boosted posts in Maadan area in Al-Raqqah desert at midnight.

 

According to SOHR sources, the recently-transported weapons had been arrived a few days ago from Iraq in Athar Al-Shibli area on the outskirts of Al-Mayadeen aboard vegetable trucks. The weapon shipment was transported under strict security measures at that time.

 

On December 5, SOHR activists reported seeing a weapon and ammunition shipment transported aboard vegetable trucks for camouflage purposes “for fear of being targeted” by the United States or Israel. The convoy of trucks entered Syrian territory from Iraq, and headed to Al-Mayadeen city, an Iranian stronghold west of Euphrates, where the trucks unloaded into warehouses in the archaeological area of Al-Shibli.

 

While on November 28, reliable SOHR sources confirmed that trucks belonging to Iranian-backed militias transported weapons and ammunition, including medium-range Iranian-made missiles, from ware houses in Athar Al-Shibli 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 coincided with the heavy attacks on Iranian-backed militias in the recent time.
