DeirEzzor24 exclusive report:

US fighter jets conducted air strikes on a military site and an HQ belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard militia at dawn today, Friday, in Al-Humaydah area in Al-Bukamal countryside, east of Deir Ezzor, near the Syrian-Iraqi border, according to a local reporter of the DeirEzzor24 network.

According to the reporter, no casualties were recorded in the air strikes because the Iranian militias had already evacuated a number of their headquarters in Al-Bukamal and its countryside, two hours before the raids, due to the intense drones activity in the area.

He added that the HQ that was targeted was used to hold meetings and receive people coming from Iraq, and it hosted a final meeting between IRGC commanders.

Four air strikes were carried out against a base for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard militia in the Al-Mazari area, south of the city of Al-Mayadeen, resulting in the destruction of a number of command rooms and supply rooms containing quantities of weapons, and are used as a military warehouse. The Mazari base is the largest base in Al-Mayadeen and its surroundings, and it is where the commanders of the IRGC gather sometimes. However, the air strikes did not result in casualties.

In response to the U.S air strikes this early morning, the Iranian militias stationed in the vicinity of the city of Al-Mayadeen, east of Deir Ezzor (west of the Euphrates), bombed the global coalition base in the Omar oil field, using rockets, a shote while ago.

The Pentagon claimed responsibility for the operation shortly after it was carried out, saying that American forces conducted self-defense strikes on two facilities in Al-Bukamal in eastern Syria used by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and affiliated groups.

This fresh attack by the American forces against the Iranian Revolutionary Guard militia in Al-Bukamal was in retaliation to a bombing that targeted the coalition base at the Conico gas plant northeast of Deir Ezzor, yesterday evening, Thursday.
