BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 A.M.) – Last night, an unidentified warplane carried out airstrikes over the eastern Syria city of Albukamal, causing a number of explosions that were heard throughout the area.

According to Russia Today, an unnamed Iraqi security official confirmed the airstrikes, saying that at least 18 Iraqi fighters were killed in Albukamal.

The security official added that another 38 members of the unnamed Iraqi faction were wounded during the attack.

A source from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has confirmed the reports about the explosions; however, it is still not clear who carried out these airstrikes.

Many reports have claimed that Israeli drones were responsible for the attack, but nothing has been confirmed.

It is worth noting that Israeli drones were previously accused of carrying out a powerful attack over a Hashd Al-Sha’abi (var. Popular Mobilization Units) base in the Salaheddine Governorate of Iraq.

This alleged attack marked the first time in decades that the Israeli Armed Forces had carried out strikes inside Iraq.

The purpose of these Israeli attacks is to support ISIS..like IDF did when ISIS was deployed in Quneitra province…I dont know why Iraqi PMU dont have air defense system deployed in that area…knowing that Israel as well US…are the true enemies….

ISIS founder Zarqawi hid in Iran after fleeing Afgha in 2001, then was smuggled by IRGC/Quds-Force in 2002 in order to accuse Saddam of association with Qaeda… BTW, never noticed that Qaeda never did an attack in Iran?
Qaeda attack Sunnis but don’t attack Shias… Isn’t it odd?
ISIS = Iranian Secret Intelligence Service.

Do you know about the range of Israeli armed drones? Same thing as Reapers : they fly for 24h if not more at near 200km/h…
They definitively don’t need to operate from SDF areas! This BS comes from Turks, this was retraced…

+++ “this cowards will keep attacking and killing”
=> Like the joint Quds-Force+Hezbulshit sleeper-cell busted in France a few months ago which participated terror attacks in Europe and murdered opponents to the Ayatoilets regime?
It’s high time we consider providing help to Israel

It’s a pity we let them alone at doing the dirty job “retribution” is.

The purpose of this is to pick a fight with everyone they can… so they can spin the narrative of ‘defending themselves’. The aggressor, however is Israel and this will most likely backfire.

Saudis have 300+ Chengdu Pterodactyl : And an undisclosed number of these : Didn’t Houthis fired some ballistic missile(s) on KSA yesterday? Turkey has at least 75 Bayraktar : And the rumour that Israeli drones came from SDF-held territory has been sourced in Turkey Moreover, before ErDOG ruined relations with Israel by backing Hamas (Musim Brotherhood) terrorists, Turkey bought numbers of IAI Harpy, a very efficient Israeli kamikaze drone : And I think that USA has some accounts to settle with Iraq’s Iranian puppets too… So… Israel? Maybe… Maybe not… Any way, the Hebrew state is far too nice with… Read more »
