Syria-Iraq-Jordan border triangle | Coalition to install anti-drone system in Al-Tanaf base

Reliable sources have informed SOHR that “International Coalition” is preparing for the installation of anti-drone air defence batteries in Al-Tanaf base, under the threat of Iranian-backed militias deployed in the vicinity of the 55-kilometre zone.

Meanwhile, SOHR activists have reported seeing the forces put on high alert and lift the combat readiness of the “International Coalition” forces at Al-Tanf base near the Syrian-Iraqi-Jordanian border triangle in the 55-kilometre zone since the recent attack that hit Al-Tanaf in August.

According to Syrian Observatory activists, Iranian-backed militias are preparing to target Al-Tanf base with five drones, while Coalition forces continue to put their troops on high alert.

Yesterday, SOHR activists monitored the flight of two helicopters and scout drones of the “International Coalition” over Al-Mayadin, which is controlled by Iran-backed militias, in Deir Ezzor.

Moreover, planes were flying over Al-Sabha desert in eastern Deir Ezzor countryside and threw flare grenades.

In the same context, “International Coalition” forces in Al-Tanf base instructed Jaish Maghawer Al-Thawra to mobilize and deploy, in anticipation of any operation with drones of Iranian militias.

On August 31, a commander of the Lebanese Hezbollah visited Al-Mayadeen city in Deir Ezzor countryside.

The commander who is known as “Hajj Sajjad” met with Iran-backed militia commanders and ordered them to form cells in the eastern Euphrates region working for Iranian-backed militias, in order to launch attacks on U.S. bases and use kamikaze drone from distances close to the US bases to ensure they are not spotted by ground defences.

Reliable sources informed SOHR that International Coalition forces asked the intelligence services working with them in Syria for intelligence on the sites of the deployment of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and its militias.
