Air raids on Suwayda, Deir Ezzor leave dead and wounded amongst Assad’s militias

Jun 24, 2020

Aerial bombardment of rural areas of As-Suwayda and Deir Ezzor in Syria on Tuesday evening reportedly killed and wounded several Assad regime militiamen.

The regime's ‘SANA’ agency claimed that regime air defenses responded to the planes which carried out the bombing of the militias’ bases.

SANA claimed that the bombardment targeted the Kabbagb area, west of Deir Ezzor and the Al-Sukhna area, in addition to sites near the city of Sallakh, in the south of As-Suwayda.

Although SANA did not indicate that the bombing was carried out by Israeli aircraft, Lebanese media suggested that it did, confirming that it was carried out using four planes.

If this are the latest Israeli bombing raids in Syria, they’re the first in three weeks, although the Israeli army has not issued any official statement either confirming or denying Israel’s involvement.

Lebanese media, quoting Syrian sources, reported that an unidentified Iranian truck had arrived in As-Suwayda this morning, indicating that the Israeli aircraft had flown in low over the Lebanese area of Hermel.
