Syrian troops, Iranian militias launch assault on Bedouin villages
(MENAFN) Syrian army and Iranian-backed militias launched an attack on Bedouin villages in southeast Syria in order to consolidate control of a row of desert expanding to the Iraqi border.
Accordingly, the rebels came under attack at dawn in a populated desert area that lies east of the pro-government controlled city of Sweida, inhabited by the Druze minority.
Accordingly, this is the biggest attack by the regime and they have used all typed of weapons from aerial bombing to artillery and an unpredicted ground offensive.
However, the area is not part of the U.S.-Russian brokered truce for southwest Syria that came into effect on Sunday in the first peace-making effort of the war by the U.S. government.
