Arab-language media on Friday evening reported an air strike in Al Bukamal in Syria, located near the border with Iraq.

Explosions were heard in the area following the strike.

Al-Arabiya TV reported that the strike targeted what was described as “military headquarters”. Other reports said a weapons truck was attacked as well.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an organization affiliated with the Syrian opposition which is based in London, said that "an explosion occurred in the areas of the pro-Iranian militias in the city of Al Bukamal."

The Observatory added that drones were observed in the area before the strike.

Syrian radio station Sham FM reported that the strike may have been an American air strike.

Earlier this month, an Iranian military adviser was killed in an alleged Israeli strike in the Aleppo region of Syria.

In May, Syrian media reported that eight Syrian soldiers were injured in air strikes that targeted a building in the Damascus area and which were attributed to Israel.
