Unidentified aircraft conducted numerous bombardments of Iranian-proxy militias in Syria’s eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor. The aerial assault occurred shortly before midnight on Saturday, with local sources reporting at least 8 separate attacks on the Maizilah base which serves as the headquarters of several Shi’ite militias operating in Syria at the behest of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.
At least 12 Iranian-backed militiamen of Iraqi and Afghan origin were reportedly killed, while weapons caches and the vehicle fleet at the compound sustained extensive damage.
It is important to mention that the incident occurred after the Iranian-controlled installation obtained significant reinforcements from Iraq of both Iranian-proxy militiamen and military equipment. It is also of interest to note that the latest strike came less than two days after another clandestine aerial operation by unknown assailants destroyed an Iranian missile production plant near the Syrian city of Masyaf.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit has refused to confirm or deny involvement in either of the aerial assaults on Syria in response to requests for comment from TV7.
