Six militants of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) were killed on Sunday due to the explosion of a landmine in Deir-ez-Zor Governorate, eastern Syria.
The IRGC militants were killed while they were training on demining in the town of Abu Kamal in the eastern countryside of Deir-ez-Zor, a military source told North Press.
The source said that four of those killed hailed from Deir-ez-Zor, while the two others were from the city of Palmyra in the Syrian Desert.
On Saturday, unknown gunmen shot a civilian to death and injured his son in a town in the east of Deir-ez-Zor.
The Iranian-backed militias and the Syrian government forces have been running vast swaths in the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor since expelling ISIS in 2017.
