Iran launches mid-range missiles at IS centers in Syria for Tehran attacks
TEHRAN - In retaliation for the two terrorist attacks, Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRCG) fired mid-range missiles hitting ISIL centers in Syria's Deir Ezzur, the IRGC said in a statement issued on Sunday.


"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 added.


"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.


"A large number of Takfiri terrorists have been killed and their equipment, systems and weapons have been destroyed" in the operation, claimed Iranian security.


"The IRGC warns the Takfiri terrorists and their regional and trans-regional supporters that they would be engulfed by its revolutionary wrath and flames of the fire of its revenge in case they repeat any such devilish and dirty move in future."



Twin Attacks in Tehran


On June 7, seventeen people had been killed while 52 others were injured in a series of attacks with one targeting Iran's parliament and the other one at Imam Khomeini Mausoleum.

Responsibility Claims


The notorious ISIS claimed responsibility for the twin attacks at the Iranian parliament and the tomb of Ayatollah Khomeini in Tehran, in what would be the first time it has carried out a major terror operation on Iranian soil.
