Syrian media reported on 17 June 2018 that U.S.-led coalition warplanes targeted positions of Iran-backed, pro-Assad militants and Iraqi militias in Al Herri located near Al Bukamal in eastern Syria.
Some reports indicated this may have been an Israeli air or missile attack.
At least 20 Iraqi members of a group linked to Iran-backed Hashd al-Shaabi (PMF) units, and 50 Lebanese Hezbollah militia members were killed and injured during this attack.
After 24 hours, IRGC Quds Force-linked Hashd al-Shaabi (PMF) confirmed a number of its members were killed in the airstrikes. Syrian TV. announced that 38 Iran IRGC members were killed and wounded; IRGC has remained completely silent.
The Revolutionary Guards Corps chief Mohammad Ali Jafari said today: “We are very close to victory in Yemen… The Arabic/Western coalition has suffered a defeat in Al Hodaydah…”
When the Iranian regime lies so big, rest assured they are facing miserable failure.
A video received from social media inside of Iran indicates a high number of IRGC casualties and corpses.
IRGC is known to continuously deny high casualties in its meddling across Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Lebanon.
