US airstrikes | Aircraft destroy Iranian militia posts in Deir Ezzor


Deir Ezzor province: Explosions were heard in Deir Ezzor city, at dawn, caused by airstrikes by US aircraft, targeting “Ayyash” warehouses and an Iranian-backed militia military camp in Deir Ezzor.

According to the sources, at 4 A.M., the US aircraft launched over three airstrikes with high-explosive missiles, destroying Ayyash warehouses and AlSa’iqah camp, Afghan Fatimiyoun militia’s headquarters.

According to sources, the US attack left six Syrian and non-Syrian guards dead and a number of Iranian-backed militiamen wounded.

The ambulances rushed to the site of the explosion to transfer the casualties.

Yesterday, SOHR activists reported that Jaish Maghawer Al-Thawra deployed the members stationed inside Al-Tanf base in the 55th Kilometer Zone at the Syrian-Jordanian-Iraqi border junction, and deployed members in the vicinity of the base, amid the arrival of machinery and heavy weapons to the vicinity of the base.

Meanwhile, the Coalition forces are still stationed inside the base, and according to reliable SOHR sources, the deployment of forces came in anticipation of a probable attack by drones on the area.

On August 22, an unidentified drone approached the airspace of Al-Tanaf base, where International Coalition forces are stationed, and the US ground forces managed to shoot the drone down and detonate it. Meanwhile, the attackers’ identity remains unknown.

It is worth noting that this was the second drone attack on Al-Tanaf base in the 55-kilometre zone at Syria-Jordan-Iraq border triangle in a week.
