Jun 26, 2020

Just two days after alleged Israeli airstrikes targeted a number of sites around Syria, 10 pro-Iranian militia members were killed in airstrikes by unidentified aircraft in central Syria on Thursday night, according to the local Ayn Al-Furat news source.

The airstrikes targeted two sites between Palmyra and As-Sukhna in Homs Governorate in central Syria. The first site had been used as a fuel station for the Assad regime and is currently used by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). Heavy weaponry and about 40 militants are stationed at the site. The second site is used as an operations room for the IRGC and weapons are stored there as well.
