Security campaign | Commanders and officers of IRGC, Hezbollah and Air Intelligence investigate 34 Syrians in Deir Ezzor for “dealing with coalition”

Deir Ezzor province: SOHR activists, in areas controlled by Iranian-backed militias in Deir Ezzor, have reported that Since last Saturday, the regime’s Air Intelligence has carried out a security campaign.

In this security campaign, 34 Syrian militiamen operating under the banner of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and “Hezbollah”, have been arrested so far in Al-Mayadeen, Al-Qoriyah and Al-Mu ‘hassan in eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.

The arrested militiamen were transferred to the Air Intelligence Branch in Deir Ezzor, to be investigated.

According to SOHR sources, investigations are conducted by officers of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, Hezbollah and regime air intelligence officers, for “communicating with the International Coalition and foreigner parties, monitoring the movements of Iranians and Hezbollah and giving coordinates to headquarters, military sites of Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Iranian-backed militias in Deir Ezzor.

SOHR sources added that nine of those arrested were transferred to the capital, Damascus, and that the detainees had struck reconciliation and settlement deals with the regime forces and joined the ranks of Iranian-backed militias

On September 12, SOHR activists, in Al-Mayadeen “Iranian colony” in west Euphrates region, reported that Iranian-backed militias, especially non-Syrian ones, ordered their members to dramatically limit their movements in Al-Mayadeen city for fear of possible attack.

According to SOHR sources, militiamen leave their headquarters and bases only when necessary and take their caution, for fear of assassinations.

On September 9, SOHR activists reported that the Lebanese “Hezbollah” militias arrested 17 of its Syrian members, for “dealing with the International Coalition”. Meanwhile, the arrested members are being investigated.

Accordingly, the number of Syrian members of the Lebanese “Hezbollah”, who were handed over to regime forces, has risen to 63 since September.

The Lebanese “Hezbollah” militias are worried about the disloyalty of their Syrian members, and accuse them of “dealing with the International Coalition under the support of the United States of America”, where the International Coalition forces executed several airstrikes on the positions of “Hezbollah” in Deir Ezzor province during the past period.
