Iranian Militias Halt Military Movements in Deir Ez-Zour City

Apr 12 2024

ARK News… Out of fear of Israeli targeting, Iranian militias in Deir Ez-Zour city have halted their military movements over the past few days.

Syrian media sources reported that Deir Ez-Zour city, under the control of regime forces and Iranian militias, has witnessed a period of calm recently with no new movements by Iran-affiliated militias in the city, such as opening new headquarters or bringing in shipments of weapons and ammunition.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Iranian-backed militias are concerned about Israeli airstrikes and the possibility of new assassination operations targeting their leaders in Syria, prompting them to attempt to conceal their activities amid heightened tension and anticipation, especially given Iran's threats to respond decisively to Israel's assassination of leaders of the "Axis of Resistance."
