Seven Killed In Syria Air Strikes

Seven people have been killed after air strikes destroyed a convoy of trucks that crossed into Syria from Iraq.

Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Monday: “The seven were truck drivers and their assistants, all of them non-Syrians, they were killed as a result of unidentified aircraft targeting a convoy of Iran-backed groups.”

The strikes destroyed a convoy of six refrigerated trucks transporting Iranian weapons in the Boukamal border region, the Observatory added.

No country claimed the strikes, but Israel has carried out hundreds of air and missile strikes against Iran-backed and government forces in Syria, where the US military is also active.

The strikes hit a convoy of trucks, but also the headquarters of Iran-backed groups in the area, activist Omar Abu Layla, who heads the Deir Ezzor 24 media outlet, also said on Monday.

He added; “There was heavy damage in the area that was struck.”
