A convoy of Iran-backed groups has been targeted by air strikes in eastern Syria, according to local sources.

There were at least four trucks loaded with sealed boxes in the convoy.
No details were shared regarding casualties.

The Israeli army announced in November last year that it targeted an Iranian arms convoy on the Syria-Iraq border.
Deir ez-Zor is a strategic location on the border that has land routes from Iran to Lebanon as well as trade routes and oil pipelines.
It was captured by forces of Syria’s Bashar al Assad regime following the withdrawal of the Daesh in 2017.
Since then, Iranian-backed militias, including Lebanon's powerful Hezbollah group, have been intensively stationed in Deir ez-Zor.
