TEHRAN, Jun. 19 (MNA) – Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps fired ballistic missiles hitting ISIL base in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor in retaliation to Tehran’s twin attacks.
“IRGC has targeted ISIL headquarters in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor in a bid to revenge from and punish the Takfiri terrorists,” reads the statement issued by IRGC.
“The operation accomplished by launching the medium-range ground-to-ground missiles from Iran’s western provinces of Kermanshah and Kordistan in response to the recent ISIL-claimed terrorist attacks in Tehran, which killed 18 people and injured 50.
The statement also underlines that a large number of terrorists are killed and their ammunition and equipment are destroyed entirely.
“The message is clear; IRGC warns Takfiri terrorists and their regional and trans-regional allies that repeating evil acts against Iranian nation would burn the involved criminals in fire,” the statement warns.
“The spilling of any innocent blood will not go unanswered," said the IRGC in a statement earlier.
