Explosions from airstrikes led to violent fires, Israeli attacks killed at least five Syrian army personnel and killed 11 pro-Iranian militias.
Although the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) did not comment on the explosions, SAR troops blamed the Israelis for the attacks.
Opposition activists often report attacks by the Israeli Air Force on Deir ez-Zor province, but these reports are often denied by the Syrian army. However, the attack last night was confirmed by Syrian troops. This is the second Israeli air attack on Syrian territory this year.
