Iran's Revolutionary Guard strikes Syria for Tehran attacks

"In this operation, several ground-to-ground midrange missiles were fired from IRGC bases in Kermanshah Province and targeted Takfiri forces in the Deir Ezzor region in Eastern Syria", the IRGC said on its official news website, Sepah News. The missiles have reportedly killed large numbers of terrorists and inflicted significant material damage, Tasnim said.

"The spilling of any innocent blood will not go unanswered", Press TV cited a statement by the Revolutionary Guards as saying.

It is unclear how many missiles were fired, although a video recording uploaded to the internet allegedly shows one of the missiles passing through the night sky.

On June 7, gunmen and suicide bombers attacked the parliament complex and the shrine of revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in Tehran, killing 17 people. Deir el-Zour is home to both Islamic State militants and civilians. Iran has arrested dozens of terrorists since the Tehran attacks.

Such an attack is rare in Syria's long-running civil war, in which Iran is backing embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Iran has sent to Syria military advisers as well as thousands of "volunteer" fighters recruited among its own nationals as well as the Shiite communities in neighbouring Afghanistan and Pakistan since Syria's conflict broke out in March 2011.
