Alwaght- Several high-ranking ISIS terrorist group commanders were among hundreds of Takfiris killed when Iran’s missiles hit their headquarters in Syria’s Deir Ezzor late Sunday.
Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) fired six medium-range ground-to-ground ballistic missiles at ISIS bases in Deir Ezzor in retaliation for twin terrorist attacks in the Iranian capital Tehran, which killed 17 people and injured over 50 others.
Sources in Syria say one of the missiles descended directly on an ISIS command center in the city of al-Mayadin in Deir Ezzor.
According to the sources, Sa'ad al-Husseini, nom de guerre Abu Sa'ad, a senior Saudi commander of ISIS was killed in the Sunday evening airstrikes. Additionally, Six Libyan ISIS commanders were killed in the attack; two of whom have been identified as Abu Asim al-Libyai and Abdel Kader al-frani, better known as Abu Harith.
At least 360 ISIS terrorists were confirmed killed during the rare ballistic missile attacks launched by IRGC.
"The Takfiri terrorists' command center, concentration points and logistical centers used for assembling cars for suicide attacks in Deir Ezzur region in Eastern Syria came under attack by the IRGC moments ago in a move to punish the terrorists for the twin attacks on the Iranian parliament and the holy shrine of the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, on June 7," the statement issued by the IRGC Public Relations Office said.
"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 said.
