Armed men have committed massacre in Aleppo countryside, local media reported on Thursday (January 10).
Suspected Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) shot dead six shepherds in the Syrian desert near Mekhlef Badia in Aleppo countryside after they were kidnapped from Abeisan village, Euphrates Post reported.
On Sunday, suspected Iranian militias slaughtered 21 shepherds in the Syrian desert near Maadan town in Raqqa countryside.
The knife-attack victims were living in a desert area controlled by Assad, Iranian and Iranian backed militias.
Activists and local media said the two massacres are in retaliation for the death of the head of the Quds Force militia Qassem Soleimani.
The United States killed Iranian Major-General Qassem Soleimani, architect of Iranian regime’s spreading military influence in the Middle East, in an air strike on Friday (January 3) at Baghdad airport.
