Unidentified drones attack Iranian-backed militia in eastern Syria-report
[Jpost] Unidentified drones attacked Syrian areas controlled by the Assad regime and Iranian-backed Shi'ite militias at the Hamdan airport near the town of al-Bukamal in the eastern region of Deir ez-Zor, according to opposition-affiliated TV station Halab Today.

Before the attack, three drones were seen flying from the direction of areas under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces militia, according to Step News, a news agency founded by Syrian activists and journalists. At noon, explosions were heard at the Hamdan airport. Ambulances were sent to the airport, but the number of causalities is unknown.

s multiple times in the past year.

Syrian forces and Iranian-backed militias began transferring equipment and materials to al-Bukamal for the purpose of building bridges across the Euphrates River, according to local news outlet Deir ez-Zor 24.

International coalition aircraft intensified flights over the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor last week.

...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate Jews Zionists Jews.

in al-Bukamal have been targeted multiple times by airstrikes in recent months. A strategic border crossing between Iraq and Syria is located in the area.

Iranian forces and militias loyal to them are fortifying their positions in the Deir ez-Zor area in eastern Syria where al-Bukamal is located, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights [SOHR]. In September, at least 37 turbans were killed in two airstrikes which also destroyed vehicles, ammunition depots, weapons and buildings in the al-Bukamal area. Many of those killed were of Iraqi nationality.

The attacks in the al-Bukamal area have been blamed on both Israel and Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
"Saudi fighter jets have been spotted along with other fighter jets that have attacked facilities and positions belonging to Iranian militias," said an unnamed source to the Independent in Arabic. The attacks targeted positions belonging to the Quds force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps in al-Bukamal and other areas near the Iraq-Syria border.

Saudi sources later denied the report, according to the Independent.

On September 9, airstrikes allegedly carried out by Israel destroyed a military base in the area under Iranian control, according to the SOHR.
