Unidentified drones targeted sites of militant groups affiliated with Iran in the city of Al-Bukamal in the countryside of Deir Ez-Zor governorate, eastern Syria, yesterday.

Local sources told Anadolu that the "unidentified" drones targeted at least three sites belonging to Iranian groups in the city of Al-Bukamal on the Syrian-Iraqi border, noting that the bombing caused seven explosions in the area.

The sources indicated that the drones continued to fly over the targeted areas after the bombing for more than an hour.

Israel has previously targeted Iranian sites in Syria using Lebanese airspace to strike its targets.
