Iran launches anti-ISIS strikes in Syria
Iranian Revolutionary Guards launched the mid-range ground-to-ground missiles from western Iran into the Deir al Zour region of eastern Syria, killing a "large number" of terrorists and destroying their equipment and weapons, it said.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards stated on Sunday that it has targeted the bases of militant groups in Syria with several missiles.
It was the first missile attack by Iran outside its own territory in 30 years, since the Iran-Iraq war of 1980-88, media in the Islamic republic reported.
The Islamic republic of Iran is a key ally of the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad, alongside Russian Federation and the Iran-backed Hezbollah movement of Lebanon.
The launch of surface-to-surface medium range missiles into Syria's Deir Ezzor province comes as ISIL militants fleeing a US-led coalition onslaught increasingly try to fortify their positions there.
The Guard warned Islamic State militants and their "regional and global supporters" that similar retaliatory attacks would target them as well if another assault in Iran occurs.
"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 auto bombs in Deir ez-Zor region, east of Syria", said the IRGC in a statement.
