Reuters reported, citing local and medical sources, that the raids launched by the United States last night on eastern Syria left at least 17 people dead.
Meanwhile, the opposition “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights” talked about the rise in the death toll from the American bombing of the Albu Kamal border area with Iraq to at least 22 dead, most of them members of the Iraqi “Hezbollah Brigades” and the rest of the “Popular Mobilization”, indicating that the toll Filter for height.
The Observatory stated that the bombing targeted sites and a shipment of weapons as they entered the Syrian territories from Iraq through a military crossing near the main Al-Qaim crossing in the Albu Kamal area in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, adding that the American strikes resulted in the complete destruction of three ammunition trucks.
The Pentagon announced that the recent raids were carried out, based on intelligence information provided by the Iraqi side, against Iranian-backed armed groups in eastern Syria, in response to the recent attacks against US personnel in Iraq.
