Further reinforcement | Iran proxies boost their positions in Al-Bokamal desert and regime forces bring in further military reinforcement to Syrian desert

SOHR reliable sources have reported that Iranian-backed militias deployed in Al-Hari desert on the Syria-Iraq border near Al-Bokamal city in Deir Ezzor countryside have reinforced their positions and points with armoured vehicles and several heavily armed militiamen.

This comes as regime forces continue to bring further military reinforcement soldiers and proxy militiamen to different areas across Syrian desert with the aim of searching for the increasingly active ISIS cells in the region.

According to Syrian Observatory sources, reinforcement of hundreds of soldiers and heavy weapons arrived today in several positions on Khanasser-Athriya road, after military reinforcement were brought in several batches over the past days.

This comes after killing 20 regime soldiers and NDF militiamen in separate attacks by ISIS members in the Syrian desert since early 2022.

On January 14, the latest of these attacks was carried out when SOHR activists documented the death of five NDF members, some of whose bodies were burned down, and injury of 14 others in a new attack by ISIS cells on positions and bulwarks where National Defence Forces were stationed in Al-Salihiya desert near Al- Bokamal city, on the Syria-Iraq border in Deir Ezzor countryside.

Accordingly, the number of regime soldiers and NDF members who have been killed by ISIS in the Syrian desert since the beginning of 2022 has risen to 20. While ISIS has lost 11 members in the same period in Russian airstrikes on their hideouts and positions in the Syrian desert.
