Intensive Movements | Iranian-backed militias change their positions and redeploy their troops across Syria

SOHR sources have reported intensive and unusual movements of Iranian-backed militias in different areas across Syria. These redeploying and positioning of militias continue for hours till the moment.

In the western Euphrates region, Iranian-backed militias in Al-Bokamal and its desert, Al-Mayadeen and its countryside have changed their positions and outposts and stationed in new posts, transported weapons and ammunition to other locations in Al-Shibli area, Al-Mazarea in the outskirts and desert of Al-Mayadeen and in Al-Raqqah.

Syrian Observatory sources have reported that the Iranian-backed militias have transported their forces and weapons from two areas of Maadan desert to the desert.

Syrian Observatory sources have also added unusual movements of Iranian-backed militias in Palmyra and its desert and other areas in the eastern countryside of Homs, as these militias have repositioned in new sites there and evacuated warehouses and points.

It’s worth noting that similar operations on the outskirts of the capital Damascus and near the border with Lebanon in Rif Dimashq have occurred.

This follows the missile attack on Erbil in the Kurdistan region of Iraq that affected the area of the US embassy there.

It also comes days after two Iranian-backed members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s operating under the banner of “Al-Quds corps” and two other Syrian fighters operating under the banner of Iranian-backed militias were killed in an Israeli attack on March 7, hitting their military positions near Damascus International Airport.
