A source told Deir Ezzor 24 network that local fighters of the Iranian proxy militias are being mistreated by their commanders.

According to the source, the food provided to the elements is very bad, and drinking water is contaminated, which has led to a statement of impatience among these elements.

As a precaution, the militias leadership prevented the elements from leaving their barracks during rest times, to prevent them from escaping or defecting.

It is indicated that the Iranian militias have tightened their procedures against the local volunteers over the past period for fear that they may defect and join the Russian forces, which have opened the door for people to volunteer for fighting in Libya.
