BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – The Iranian forces in Syria activated their air defenses after learning of the U.S. planned attack, the Russian publication Avia.Pro reported on Friday.

According to the Russian publication, the Iranian forces learned of the U.S. planned attack and prepared for their air defense systems for the confrontation.

Prior to this, a source from the Syrian military in Damascus told Al-Masdar that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) had placed their troops on high alert near the border city of Albukamal.

The Iranian presence in the border city of Albukamal is incredibly close to the U.S. Armed Forces, who are currently deployed in eastern Deir Ezzor.

While the U.S. and Iran often avoid each other in eastern Syria, the American forces have attacked the Iranian-backed paramilitaries near the Tanf Zone in southeastern Syria.

These attacks were often carried out by the U.S. Air Force after the Iranian-backed paramilitaries and their allies from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) approached the rebel groups near Tanf.
