BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 P.M.) – The Iranian military and their allies have moved one of their bases in the Deir Ezzor Governorate city of Albukamal after a string of Israeli Air Force strikes this month.

Citing opposition activists in the area, Syria’s Al-Watan newspaper reported that the Iranian military and their allied groups moved their base that was recently struck by Israeli warplanes to an unknown location along the Syrian-Iraqi border.

This base, which was targeted by alleged Israeli drones, was struck earlier this month and resulted in the death of several Iraqi paramilitary fighters.

Hezbollah accused Israel, with support from the U.S., of carrying out this attack on the Iraqi paramilitary compound. In turn, Israel has not responded to these allegations from Hezbollah or the Syrian government.

The attack on this compound came shortly after the Israeli Air Force targeted a Hezbollah site inside the Aqraba area of southeastern Damascus. Israel later used a suicide drone to attack the Hezbollah media center inside the southern suburbs of Beirut city.

In response to these attacks, Hezbollah targeted a vehicle belonging to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) along Lebanon’s southern border. Hezbollah said one IDF soldier was killed, while Israel denied any causalities.

  1. +++ “Israel later used a suicide drone to attack the Hezbollah media center inside the southern suburbs of Beirut city.”
    => Actually, 2 drones were used for this strike and these weren’t ones used by IDF at all! These were two DJI Matrice 600 Pro :

    These can only be controlled from 5km… Not very Israeli styled to use improvised weapons… And Hezbollah made itself MANY enemies both in Lebanon and in about 40 countries where they did terrorist actions, add to this that their businesses with Mexican and Colombian cartels may imply some accounts settling too…

    In fact, what was a REAL Israeli strike was against the brand new Hezbollah Solid Fuel Planetary Mixer, a super rare super expensive machine allowing to make solid fuel for big rockets/ballistic missiles thus replace the old-school liquid one, the kinda tool that, if lost, delays a missile program by 1-2 years…

    +++ “that was recently struck by Israeli warplanes to an unknown location along the Syrian-Iraqi border. This base, which was targeted by alleged Israeli drones”
    => Again, they have other enemies! Saudis can absolutely operate drones from Jordan, US may want to target them, even Turkey or Iraq! Remember that an Iraqi mob burnt the Iranian consulate and another sacked the embassy and some say the Sadr movement may not be stranger to it…
    I’m NOT saying IDF isn’t behind it, I just notice that it’s not their usual strike-area and that the July/August strikes in Iraq were also blamed on them w.o. proofs. In the end, forensics blamed the 1st “strike” on an accidental fire. The 2nd, well, any news about the investigations???? Didn’t a multi-copter drone was seen before…
