Deir Ezzor 24 exclusive:
Today, Monday 5 – August, sources revealed to Deir Ezzor 24 network, that a security meeting was held between the intelligence of the Assad regime and Iranian security officials in Al-Bukamal city east of Deir Ezzor.
The sources indicated that the meeting focused on the working mechanism of the Al-Bukamal-Al-Qaim crossing, which is likely to open early next month, and that the Assad regime and the Iranian officials have drawn up an action plan for the crossing.
The parties agreed that the Assad regime’s customs and civilian police should be deployed at the crossing, and that the Iranian military and security presence should not come to eyes of people.
The meeting was held to finalize the reopening of the crossing, which Iran attaches great importance to, given that it links its militias in Iraq with the others in Syria.
Iran relies on a military crossing near al-Kam oil terminal near Al-Bukamal city in transporting weapons and elements to Syria, and it is one of Iran’s most important military crossings on the Syrian-Iraqi border.
It is noteworthy that the Revolutionary Guard militia and pro-Iranian militias dominate the entire city of Al-Bukamal and its countryside, and decide every thing there.
