Israel appeared to be behind a strike on Monday evening against Iranian militias near the Iraq-Syria border, according to media reports in both countries.

The strike in the eastern Syrian city of Al-Bukamal occurred a week following Israel hitting posts of Iranian-backed militias and an arms depot in eastern Syria, near the Iraq border.

Last month, Israel apparently carried out airstrikes on targets in Iraq associated with paramilitary groups linked to Iran, reportedly killing one fighter and seriously wounded another.

In July, Israel was behind a bombing of an Iranian weapons depot in Iraq, a move that signals Israel has expanded its targeting of Iran beyond Syria. It is believed to be the first confirmed Israeli strike in Iraq in almost four decades.
