Revolutionary Guards fire into positions in Deir ez-Zour in retaliation for attacks on the Iranian parliament and shrine of Ayatollah Khomeini

Iran has launched missile strikes targeting “terrorists” in the Islamic State-controlled Syrian town of Deir ez-Zour in retaliation for last week’s attacks on the Iranian parliament and at the shrine of Ayatollah Khomeini that killed 18 people – mostly civilians.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards, elite forces heavily involved in propping up Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, said in a statement on Sunday that it fired missiles from a base in western Iran hitting the headquarters of “Takfiri terrorists” in Deir ez-Zour, eastern Syria, referring to the Iranian terminology for extremist Sunni jihadis.
