An airstrike in eastern Syria reportedly killed on Thursday at least 27 Iran-backed terrorists fighting for the Bashar al-Assad regime.
Unidentified warplanes targeted the positions of Iran-backed foreign terrorists in the Albukamal region in Deir ez-Zor province near the Iraqi border, according to local sources.
One high-ranking terrorist, the so-called commander of the Albukamal region, was also killed in the strike.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the strike in which unidentified warplanes bombarded several positions held by Iran-backed terrorist groups in the districts of Mayadin and Elbukemal.
Along the Syria-Iraq border, Deir ez-Zor is also a major link between Iran and Lebanon.
