The Revolutionary Guard militia engages in direct conflict with Assad’s forces and Russia

Written by D24

Last Thursday (June 25), the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Militia command forced the 11th Division of Assad’s forces to remove their checkpoints from the entrance of Al-Bukamal, a source told Deir Ezzor 24 network.

According to the source, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard militia command also prevented the Russian-backed Al-Quds Force militia from opening headquarters or setting up checkpoints in al-Bukamal city.

These new actions of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard militia against Assad’s forces and Al-Quds force militia are taking place at a time of great tension between the Iranian Revolutionary Guard militia leadership and the Russian forces, in what appears to be a struggle for power in Deir Ezzor province.
