A source told Deir Ezzor 24 network that an extraordinary meeting was held in Al-Mayadeen city on Thursday, August 6, including leaders of the National Defense Militia and Iranian leaders led by “Haj Morteza.”
The source noted that the meeting was held to discuss the recent events that followed the assasination of Sheikh “Amuttshar al-Hifil” in the eastern Euphrates areas of Deir Ezzor.
The source confirmed that the Iranians recommended that contact with influential figures in the eastern Euphrates areas under the SDF control should be intensified to attract them to their side through supporting them with everything they need, taking advantage of the tribal anger prevailing the region.
The areas east of the Euphrates have witnessed demonstrations and armed actions in the past few days following the killing of Sheikh Muttshar al-Hifil and a man with him east of Deir Ezzor. Iran and Assad regime took swift steps to benefit from the current situation in the region.
