BEIRUT, Sept 17: Overnight air strikes killed 10 pro-Iranian Iraqi militiamen in eastern Syria, a war monitor said on Tuesday, without specifying who carried them out.
The strikes targeted "three positions of the (Iranian) Revolutionary Guards and allied (Iraqi) militias" in Albu Kamal, in the Euphrates Valley just across the border from Iraq, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
"Ten Iraqis from pro-Iranian militias were killed," the Britain-based monitor said.
The strikes came as tensions mounted between arch-foes Iran and the United States after Washington blamed Tehran for weekend attacks on Saudi oil installations.
They were the second to hit pro-Iranian forces in eastern Syria in little more than a week.    -AFP
