Drone strike reported on pro-Iran militia arms shipment on Iraq-Syria border
[IsraelTimes] Iraqi media outlets attribute rare daytime attack in the eastern Deir Ezzor province to Israel; IDF refuses to comment.
Unidentified drones have targeted a weapons shipment making its way from Iraq to Syria near an illegal military crossing used by pro-Iranian militias, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Wednesday afternoon, citing unnamed sources.
An interestingly specific nonspecific statement. Ah well, no doubt all will be revealed in a day or two.Several Iraqi news outlets attributed the strikes to Israel.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which has had its credibility questioned in the past, said the rare daylight incident happened near Albu Kamal in the eastern Deir Ezzor province.
The first hint...The report said the vehicle was loaded with weapons and ammunition, adding that there is no information on casualties and the extent of the damage.
Oooohhhh, secondariesIsrael has reportedly bombed sites connected to Iran’s alleged missile production and transport efforts in the area before.
The Israel Defense Forces refused to comment on the strikes, in accordance with its policy to neither confirm nor deny its operations in Syria, save for those in retaliation for an attack from the country.
