Pro-Iran militias kill seven people in Deir Ezzor
 (Zaman Al Wasl)- Syrian activists on Tuesday said pro-Iran militias had committed the third massacre against civilians in retaliation to the killing of Iran's second man in a U.S. airstrike ten days ago.

The village of Ayyash in the eastern Deir Ezzor province has mourned seven people said they were slaughtered by Iranian militants.

Activists said the gruesome crimes were in retaliation to the death of Qassem Soleimani, the former leader of Quds Force and all Shiite militias in Syria, who was killed last week in a U.S. airstrike near Baghdad's airport along with top Shiite militants.

The Shiite militants beheaded six shepherds last Friday in northern Aleppo province, four days after the Raqqa massacre that left 21 dead.

All the Shiite militias are working under the command of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), led by Suleiman Rezaei, nicknamed ‘The Iranian’.

In December, Iran-backed militias mobilized in the Syrian Desert, known as Badiya, near the historic city of Palmyra, al-Sukhna, the al-Talila area, and the Hail oil field.

The civil war in Syria began in early 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on protestors with unexpected ferocity, which led to hundreds of thousands of deaths and the displacement of millions.
