The Syrian Badia region is a source of concern for the Iranian-backed factions and the government forces, where ISIS sleeper cells are witnessing operations that inflicted heavy losses on the forces and factions, despite the intensive security campaigns to comb the Badia.
Yesterday, Three members of Iranian-backed militias were killed east of Deir-ez-Zor by members of the same faction to steal weapons, mobile phones, and cash the three men were supposed to deliver to the military sites.
Iranian-backed militias control vast areas of the eastern countryside of Deir-ez-Zor after the defeat of the Islamic State Organization (ISIS) in late 2017.
