BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Shiite militia, Liwaa Al-Baqir, announced through their official Facebook page on Friday that they will be starting a military operation in eastern Syria.

The Iranian-supplied militia stated that this operation will concentrate on eastern Syria, with a strong emphasis on the US-controlled areas in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

Recently, Liwaa Al-Baqir received new military supplies from Iran, which will likely be used to cross the Euphrates River to fight the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in eastern Deir Ezzor.

Liwaa Al-Baqir is considered one of the most powerful groups in the Aleppo Governorate, boasting thousands of members from the predominately Shiite towns of Al-Zahra’a and Nubl.
