Tehran:Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps has launched missiles at Daesh Takfiris’ headquarters in Syria’s Dayr al-Zawr.
The IRGC announced on Sunday that the medium-range ground-to-ground missiles were launched from Iran’s western provinces of Kermanshah and Kordestan in response to the recent Daesh-claimed terror attacks in Tehran, which killed 18 people and injured 50 more.
The IRGC noted that a large number of terrorists have been killed in the attacks, in which a large amount of terrorists’ weapons, ammunition, and equipment were also destroyed.
“The spilling of innocent blood will not go unanswered,” said the IRGC in a statement.
The IRGC further assured the Iranian nation that it will “spare no efforts to defend the national security and obviate plots as well as anti-security phenomena.”
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is warning ISIS militants that missile attacks launched into eastern Syria the previous day can be repeated if the extremists take action against Iran’s security.
“if they (ISIS) carry out a specific action to violate our security, definitely there will be more launches, with intensified strength.”, Gen. Ramazan Sharif said on Monday.
Sharif says six missiles, with a range of up to 700 kilometers or 430 miles, were launched during Sunday’s attack, which he called “successful” but “limited.”
The strike was in response to an attack earlier in June on Iran’s parliament and a shrine in Tehran that killed at least 17 people and wounded more than 50.
The unofficial footage below released on social media shows what is reported to be one of the missiles being launched from one of Iran’s western provinces.
On June 7, gunmen mounted almost simultaneous assaults on Iran’s Parliament and the Mausoleum of the late Founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini.
The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the assaults. Iran has arrested dozens of terrorists since the Tehran attacks.
