Iran launches missile strikes at Syria over deadly attack

Iran Guard fires missiles into Syria in revenge attack

Iran has fired missiles at militants in Syria blamed for an attack in southwestern Iran on September 22, the Revolutionary Guards said on Monday, in what it called a sign of Tehran's readiness to punish its enemies' "wickedness". The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attack. The US and its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as well as regional allies, having invested billions of dollars in arming and funding the so-called rebels dominated by Al Qaeda-linked Islamists, have no intention of abandoning their goal of regime change or of ceding any regional influence to Iran.

Abu Kamal is held by forces loyal to Syria's embattled President Bashar Assad.

"A senior Revolutionary Guards commander said on Monday that Islamic State militants in Syria's Deir al-Zor province had helped coordinate the parade attack.These Islamic State militants were the target of the missile strike, said Major General Mohammad Baqeri, the armed forces chief of staff, according to Fars News". The town is held by regime forces and allied militiamen who recaptured it from the Sunni extremist group "Islamic State" (IS) in 2007.

The Trump administration is eager to see Iran's departure, in part to aid ally Israel, which has conducted a number of strikes this year on Iranian military targets in Syria.

"This is the roaring of missiles belonging to the Revolutionary Guard of the Islamic Revolution", the state TV's reporter said as the missiles launched behind him.

The militants also threatened to carry out more attacks in Iran.

Iran at first blamed Arab separatists from the attack, but last Monday, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei suggested that jihadis operating in Iraq and Syria might be behind the shootings.

Analysts said that the Iranian strikes on Monday confirmed Tehran's intention "to continue its activity in Syria despite Washington and Tel Aviv's demands".

This is the second time Iran has fired missiles into Syria in response to an attack on its soil.

He said that such attacks were precedent and al-Ahwaziya terrorist group had earlier fired at the convoys of people who visited the Southern cities of Iran which resisted against Saddam's aggression during the 8-year Iraqi-imposed war against Iran in 1980s. The separatists say that strike killed at least 15 people and wounded over 50. As further evidence, just last week, the IRGC launched ballistic missiles at Kurdish militants in Iraq.
