Daesh Shells Iranian Humanitarian Convoy in Syria's Deir Ezzor

DEIR EZZOR -The Daesh terrorist group shelled an Iranian humanitarian convoy in one of the central streets of Deir Ezzor. The attack resulted in one of the drivers and at least four civilians were injured, Sputnik reported.

Sputnik correspondent at the scene said that at least five people were injured in mortar shelling attack by terrorists from the Daesh terrorist group (banned in numerous countries) on a convoy of trucks with humanitarian aid near the City Hall building in the Syrian city of Deir Ezzor.

 The shelling occurred in one of the central streets of Deir Ezzor and resulted in one of the drivers and at least four civilians were injured.

"The column arriving today in Deir ez-Zor was delivering humanitarian aid from Iran, in addition to food, more than 20 tonnes of medical supplies were delivered, but today's shelling once again proved that the Daesh terrorists have no principles, their task is only to kill civilians," the city mayor's office told Sputnik.

In early September, the Syrian government troops, backed by Russian airstrikes, broke three years-long Daesh blockade to the west and south of Deir Ezzor. On Monday, the Syrian Army crossed the Euphrates River with the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces near Deir Ezzor, knocking militants out from a number of areas, and are currently developing an offensive eastward.
