Seven people were killed near the Syria-Iraq border on Sunday night when a truck convoy was hit by unidentified aircraft, according to Saudi media.
The strike occurred in near the city of Al-Bukamal according to Al Arabiya, which cited U.K.-based war monitor Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR). The seven casualties were drivers and their assistants, all non-Syrians, according to the report.
The Saudi outlet quoted SOHR chief Rami Abdel Rahman as stating that the trucks were transporting Iranian weapons.
Nearby targets associated with Iran-backed groups were also hit in the strike, according to the report.
No country or group claimed responsibility for the strikes, though Al Arabiya noted that both the United States and Israel conducted airstrikes in the region in the past.
According to SOHR, the airstrikes were carried out by drones, which were seen hovering over the area.
Citing U.S. officials, The Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday that Israel was responsible for a drone strike on Saturday targeting a military facility inside Iran.
Israel was behind the drone strike that targeted a military facility in Iran late Saturday, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing U.S. officials and others familiar with the operation.
The attack came as Jerusalem and Washington explore new ways to counter the Iranian nuclear threat and with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken scheduled to visit Israel on Monday.
