Iran's Revolutionary Guard strikes Syria for Tehran attacks

A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on June 18- abrar

The launch, which hit Syria's eastern city of Deir el-Zour on Sunday night, appeared to be Iran's first missile attack overseas in over 15 years and its first in the Syrian conflict amid its support of embattled President Bashar Assad.

Elaborating on the missile attack, the force said they fired "a number of mid-range ground-to-ground missiles" from the IRGC aerospace force's bases in Iran's western provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdistan.

The Guard said it launched the strikes on Sunday in retaliation for attacks in Tehran earlier this month that were claimed by the Islamic State group.

Iran has fired missiles into eastern Syria targeting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group which claimed the attack on the Iranian parliament and a shrine in Tehran.

A U.S. fighter jet shot down a Syrian plane Su-22 Sunday near the Islamic State group-held city of Raqqa after the plane dropped bombs near coalition forces supported by the U.S. This marked the latest escalation between the U.S. and Syria since the civil war began in the middle eastern country six years ago.

On June 7, five IS-affiliated gunmen stormed Iran's parliament and the Imam Khomeini mausoleum in Tehran, killing 18 people and wounding more than 50.

Another Hebrew media outlet, Walla news, quoted unnamed "diplomatic sources" also saying that only one or two of the seven Iranian missiles hit their target.

"We are announcing with pride that the same region where the Tehran terrorist operation had been orchestrated has been targeted from [IRGC bases in] Iran".

"The first message is that Iran punishes terrorists", he said.

Gen Sharif told The Associated Press that the missile launch reflected Iran's "military power", though Iran has no intention of starting another war.

Ya'ari noted that Iranian officials, trying to cover up the extent of the failure, have been repeating over and over in the past few hours how successful the missile strike was. Israel also remains concerned about Iran's missile launches.

Meanwhile, the US -backed opposition fighters said Assad's forces have been attacking them in the northern province of Raqqa and warned that if such attacks continue, the fighters will take action.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared to pour cold water on Monday a Wall Street Journal report that the Jewish.

Tasnim News Agency reported that the city of Deir ez-Zor was targeted specifically because numerous IS fighters had fled there after suffering setbacks in other parts of Syria and in Mosul, Iraq, where Iraqi forces are forcing the group to retreat.

"But I think that this is a massage to supporters of Daesh and also al-Qaeda in the region, who are both really followers of the ideology that is centered in Saudi Arabia - a country which is taking hostile steps, hostile moves and measures toward Iran with the backing of the United States", the analyst underlined.
