On Saturday, reports surfaced of an unidentified aircraft carrying out several strikes on Iranian-backed militia in the Deir ez-Zur region near the Syria-Iraq border. At least two different sites were struck during the airstrike outside the city of Al-Mayadeen. The sites belonged to the Shi’ite militia and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), or Iran.

This region is notorious for airstrikes, primarily Israeli, being located just north of the city of Al-Bukamal, where Iranian-backed militia are perpetually moving weaponry and other supplies to their proxies throughout the Middle East and the Mediterranean coast.

Israel is responsible for a number of strikes in eastern Syria in the last couple of months alone, and more recently, near the city Al-Bukamal, where Iranian-backed militia have suffered dozens of casualties.
