Unverified media reports claim unidentified aircraft struck a truck near the Syria-Iraq border a short while ago, hours after a similar strike was reported last night.

Naher Media, a Syrian opposition online outlet, says the truck was loaded with weapons and ammunition destined for Iranian militias.

There are no further details on the apparent attack, but images circulating online show smoke rising from the area.

Last night, several Syrian and Arab outlets reported that unidentified aircraft struck several trucks belonging to Iranian militias at the al-Qaim crossing between Syria and Iraq.
