Iranian military reinforcements enter Syria from Iraq

DEIR EZ-ZOR, Syria (North Press) – At dawn on Thursday, Iranian reinforcements reached military posts of Iran-backed militias in Deir ez-Zor, eastern Syria, coming from Iraq.

The Iranian reinforcements come after an unidentified aircraft bombed on October 9 a military post of Quds Force, affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). The attack, which took place on the outskirts of the village of al-Heri in the countryside of Abu Kamal, southeast of Deir ez-Zor city, killed militants and damaged logistics warehouses.

A military source in the Quds Force said that the pro-Iranian militias brought in more than eight cargo vehicles through the Sikek border crossing coming from Iraqi territory.

He added to North Press that the convoy included logistical materials and ammunition, in addition to two vehicles carrying military personnel in civilian clothes.

The vehicles entered military posts of Quds Force in Abu Kamal, and transported militants coming from Iraqi territory to a military post next to al-Shifaa Hospital in the town of al- Mayadin in the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor.
