UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Iranian-backed terrorist militias in Syria have been hiding civilians, for fear of being targeted by the United States of America.
This comes at a time of escalating tension between Washington and Tehran, against the background of the killing of the commander of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Qassem Soleimani.
Anatolia learned from reliable sources in the Syrian province of Deir Al-Zor that Iranian militias in Syria witnessed wide movements after Soleimani was killed in an American raid.
According to the same sources, the Iranian militias located in Deir Al-Zour (east) resorted to stealth during the past two days, as they evacuated their headquarters and military points in the areas of Al Bukamal and Al-Mayadeen.
The sources pointed out that the militias, which vacated their military positions, were stationed in homes within the residential neighborhoods, and avoided meeting with each other except in cases of necessity.
On the other hand, the American forces stationed in Deir Ezzor have strengthened their measures by establishing new security barriers and increasing their patrol numbers.
Friday dawn, the commander of the Iranian “Quds Force”, Qassem Soleimani, and the deputy head of the “Popular Mobilization Authority” Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, and 8 people who were accompanying them, were killed, after an American air strike targeted two cars on the road to Baghdad Airport.
On Sunday, US President Donald Trump threatened to bomb 52 “important targets” of Iran if Tehran targeted any U.S. sites.
In November 2017, the Syrian regime forces, with the support of Russia and Iranian militias, took control of areas west of the Deir Ezzor Governorate, after clashes with ISIS terrorist operatives.
