Sources confirmed to Deir Ezzor 24 network that a case of the so-called “Mutah marriage” took place in Al-Bukamal city, the easternmost part of Deir Ezzor province.
The sources pointed out that the marriage was held between an Iranian official named “Haj Suleiman” and a girl from Al-Sukariyah village near the western entrance to Al-Bukamal city. The sources also confirmed that the sighe contract between the two parties lasts for six months according to an agreement between the two parties.
The same sources indicated that the girl’s brothers are elements in the Revolutionary Guard militia in Al-Bukamal.
It is worth mentioning that this is the second case of Mutah marriage to be recorded in Deir Ezzor, where the first one occurred in the so-called “Ein al-Ali” site in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside which Iran has transformed to a Shiite shrine, in November of 2018, where Deir Ezzor 24 Network monitored and published its details on the same date.
It is indicated that the Iranian militias have been in control of al-Bukamal since late 2017, where they pay special attention to the city and seek to attract as many civilians as they can to the Shiite faith through recruiting them in the militias, tempting them with money, or granting them privileges over ordinary civilians.
