A source told Deir Ezzor 24 network that a campaign of arrests has targeted figures working for Iran in Deir Ezzor province in the past few days.
The source noted that the arrests were carried out by Russian orders against reconciliation promoters, Shiism advocates, and some figures who have been carrying out acts for Iran in Deir Ezzor.
The source confirmed that the campaign was led by an officer of Assad’s forces named (Fakhr).
It is worth mentioning that this campaign coincides with a cold war between the Russians and the Iranians over extending influence in Deir Ezzor province, while at the same time each one of the two parties is trying to reduce the influence of the other in the province.
