US launches airstrike on Syria's Deir ez-Zor

While the clashes between the terrorist organization PKK/YPG, which controls the east of the Euphrates in Syria with the support of the international coalition, and the local Arab tribes in the region are increasing in intensity, the United States (US) carried out an airstrike on Iran-backed groups in Deir ez-Zor province in the east of the country, according to local sources.

Iranian-backed factions gathered in and around the bridge known as Baghuz Bridge, which spans the Euphrates River from Abukamal in the east of Deir ez-Zor. According to the opposition observatory, US warplanes targeted two military vehicles.

It was reported that there were dead and wounded in the vehicles and that the ammunition in the vehicles exploded.

Iranian-backed foreign groups are known to be present in the districts of Abukamal, Muhsan, and al-Mayadeen in the east of Deir ez-Zor.


Arab tribes revolted against the PKK/YPG terrorist organization and took control of many towns and villages, while Druze protested against the Syrian government in Suwayda province, located in the southwest of the country on the border with Jordan.

Demonstrators are chanting slogans against Syrian President Bashar Assad due to the high cost of living and worsening living conditions. The protests of the Druze, who sided with the Assad administration in the Syrian civil war that started in 2011, are considered an important development.
