    A week ago, an "unknown aircraft" also reported to have struck targets belonging to pro-Iranian targets, in Al Bukamal in eastern Syria near the border with Iraq, killing at least five militiamen.
    According to some reports, during the attack a fighter jet struck military vehicles, belonging to Iran-backed militias, carrying heavy machine guns.
    Surprisingly, however, Syrian did not put the blame for that attack on Israel, like it usually does following similar incidents.
