REPORT: RUSSIA ATTACKS TARGETS HELD BY IRANIAN MILITIA IN SYRIA


If this report is accurate, and it’s only 20 minutes old, this marks a major departure from the status quo. 

If Iranian forces are being attacked, perhaps this may mark a break in the relations between Russia and Iran. 

This also may be Russia emphasizing that Syria is not a place where Iran belongs.  This may be backed up by the disclosure of this event by an anonymous Syrian official.

If Russia blew up bridges, that is deliberate targeting. This is no accident. 

Regardless of the reason, and that will certainly follow, this looks like a major change.

There are no corroborating reports, at this point.

Russian forces blew up bridges on the Euphrates river held by Iranian militias several days ago, according to a report. This is the first time the Russians attacked Iranian targets in Syria.

The information came from a senior Syrian official who refused to be identified, and was reported in Bas News, a Kurdish news website.
