Syria, pro-Iran militias intensify activities in the East

Pro-Iran militias intensify activities in East Syria. Boom of Recruitments in Raqqa and Deir Ezzor, while the checkpoints in the South-East of Aleppo reach 30. Objectives: Counter pro-ISIS jihadists and carry out false flag attacks on Inherent Resolve

Pro-Iran militias are stepping up their activities in Syria, especially towards the East. Groups linked to the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and Hezbollah have set up about 30 checkpoints on the roads from southeast Aleppo to Raqqa. Objective: to maintain control of the quadrant, despite the continuous attacks by pro-ISIS jihadists. At Deir Ezzor, on the other hand, they recruited dozens of men, especially boys, who were immediately sent to some training camps. According to local sources, it seems that the guerrillas want to achieve two goals: on the one hand, to have more forces to exploit to repel the IS offensives and, if possible, to start a counterattack. On the other, to increase attacks against Inherent Resolve bases from territories under the aegis of the SDF, placing the blame on the Islamic State. This is why enlistments have also increased in Raqqa, thanks to very advantageous economic offers and benefits for the new recruits.
