Iran fires missiles into Syria in revenge for attacks

Iran fires missiles into Syria in revenge for attacks”

The IRGC said it launched the mid-range missiles from bases in western Iran at Islamic State targets in Syria's Deir ez-Zor province, semi-official Fars News Agency reported.

Iran's Revolutionary Guard said it launched a series of missiles into Syria on Sunday in revenge for deadly attacks on its capital that were claimed by the Islamic State group.

Iran backs Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in his fight against anti-government rebel groups and ISIS, which is primarily based in the Syrian city of Raqqa.

"To that end the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps ... a while ago has conducted missile attacks on Takfiri terrorists' command centers, gatherings, logistic sites and factories of suicide vehicle bombs in Deir ez-Zor region, east of Syria", said the IRGC in a statement.

Media reports said this marked the first time Iran had fired missiles as an act of war since the end of the Iran-Iraq war in 1988.

On June 7, gunmen mounted nearly simultaneous assaults on Iran's Parliament and the Mausoleum of the late Founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini.

The Guard warned ISIL militants and their "regional and global supporters" that similar retaliatory attacks would target them as well if another assault in Iran occurred.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which accused Saudi Arabia of involvement in the attacks, had also vowed to avenge the attacks.
