Iran’s IRGC Fires Ballistic Missiles at ISIS base in Syria

Alwaght- Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) have fired a mid-range ballistic missiles on ISIS terrorist positions in the Syrian province of Deir-ez Zor in retaliation for terrorist attacks in Tehran.

According to a statement published by IRGC news website, Sepahnews, "a number of mid-range ground-to-ground missiles fired from the IRGC Aerospace Force bases in Kermanshah and Kurdistan provinces targeted the Takfiri terrorists in this operation and struck them with lethal and crushing blows."

The statement reminded of earlier pledge that the IRGC would retaliate for innocent bloodshed in June 7 terrorist attacks in Tehran, and said, “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 car bombs in Deir ez-Zor region, east of Syria.”

“The IRGC pointed out that a large number of terrorists have been killed in the attacks in which a large amount of terrorist weapons, ammunition, and systems were also destroyed.

“The spilling of any innocent blood will not go unanswered," the IRGC warned in its statement adding that if terrorists and their regional and trans-regional backers repeat attacks and evil moves on Iran, they will face the wrath of IRGC.

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 ISIS Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the assaults. Following the twin attacks, IRGC forces have conducted intensive operations inside the country dismantling several terrorist cells and eliminating many terrorists in the process.

The Commander of IRGC’s Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said on Sunday that the forces have managed to kill all members of a Takfiri terrorist outfit and completely dismantle it in a southeastern Iranian town.

He added that two members of the terrorist group had been killed after the operation launched in Qasr-e Qand town in the province of Sistan-and-Baluchestan on Thursday.

The remaining members had fled to nearby mountains, but were killed during clashes with the intelligence teams of the Qods Headquarters of the IRGC ground forces, he noted.

The senior IRGC commander said the identity of the terrorists has not been determined yet, adding, “The terrorists were members of the [so-called] Ansar al-Furqan group and their identities are under investigation.” Pakpour emphasized that no IRGC member was killed or injured in the operations.
