Local news networks reported that the Iranian militias have seized hundreds of civilian homes and government offices in the province of Deir Ezzor in the past few days.
According to Deir Ezzor 24 news network, the majority of the homes are located in the major towns in Deir Ezzor countryside, especially in al-Mayadeen and Albu Kamal.
The network indicated that militants of the Hezbollah Militia and the Republican Guard commandeered dozens of civilian homes in the River Street in central of Deir Ezzor as well as in the Ardi neighborhood and Port Said Street.
The Iranian militias also commandeered dozens of homes in the Al-Sina’a neighborhood and the Corniche Street as well as the offices of the Cement Foundation and Rural Development in the Taybeh neighborhood. They also took control of civilian homes in the vicinity of Al-Nour Mosque, including the home of Doctor Mohammed Al-Shuaibi.
Militants of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps and the Iraqi Al-Nujaba’a Militia seized dozens of civilian homes in the Tueiba neighborhood and in the vicinity of the Security Complex. They also seized homes in the Katef neighborhood and the Jamiyat neighborhood, the majority of which is now commandeered by those militias.
The Syrian Coalition earlier warned of Iran’s growing influence in Syria as it called on the international community to put an end to the Iranian militias’ crimes against Syrian civilians.
Head of the Syrian Negotiations Commission Nasr al-Hariri warned of the malicious role Iran is playing in Syria and its occupation of the country. He said that Iran is seeking to obstruct the political solution and is fighting the Syrian people on behalf of the Assad regime, stressing that there are about 100,000 Iranian fighters or linked to Iran in the country.
At a press conference in the Saudi capital Riyadh last week, Hariri said that “Iran’s role is persistently growing at the expense of our people. Therefore, we support any international move that may curb Iran’s influence in the region in general, and in our country in particular.” (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
