Iran supplying militias in Dayro Zcuro (Deir ez-Zor) in Syria with long-range rockets capable of reaching Israel, according to Israeli intelligence

TEL AVIV — On Thursday, Israeli intelligence stated that Iranian militias deployed in the rural areas of Dayro Zcuro (Deir ez-Zor) have recently started building stores of medium- and long-range rockets, including missiles capable of reaching Israel.

Online Israeli media outlet Netzif Net website reported that two Iranian militias, the Afghan Fatimiyoun Brigade and the Iraqi Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba, have been constructing rocket and launch depots five meters underground in the Jabal al-Bishri area since the beginning of the year.

The report noted that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) directly transferred 20 medium-range missiles and five launchers to warehouses in the Badia near Raqqa.

Fatimiyoun and Al-Nujaba are tasked with defending the new missile arsenal through joint command points, checkpoints, and roadblocks scattered throughout the areas where the warehouses are located.
