Amid confirmed reports of fatalities | Unidentified aircraft attack military positions of Iranian-backed militias in Deir Ezzor city

Reliable SOHR sources have reported that unidentified aircraft attacked an ammunition warehouse in the “grain centre” and “rural development centre” opposite the “Officers Residences” in Harabesh neighbourhood in Deir Ezzor city. Also, SOHR activists have reported hearing explosions in Al-Jafra village, near Deir Ezzor city.


The strikes caused successive explosions in weapons depots and massive fires. Ambulances were seen rushing to the sites of the explosions, amid confirmed reports of fatalities.


On March 22, SOHR sources reported that explosions were heard in Al-Bo Kamal desert in Deir Ezzor countryside near the borders with Iraq, originating from “Al-Imam Ali” base that is used by Iranian militias as their position, coinciding with the flight of an unidentified drone over the region. However, no casualties were reported. It is worth noting that the Iranian militias conducted military exercises this morning in the targeted position.
