Iran's Revolutionary Guards fire missiles into Syria over deadly military parade attack

Iran Guard fires missiles into Syria in revenge attack

Following the missiles, seven military drones targeted the "mercenary terrorists", they added.

The terrorists attacked the bystanders watching the annual Armed Forces' parades, marking the start of the Sacred Defense Week, commemorating Iranians' sacrifices during the 8 years of the Iraqi imposed war on Iran in 1980s, in disguise of the IRGC and Basij (volunteer) forces, killing and wounding several people, including innocent women and children.

The launch was the Islamic Republic's second such missile attack on Syria in over a year.

Bagheri said the strikes were the first time the drones had "crossed multiple countries and reached their targets".

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, "heavy explosions took place at dawn (Monday) in the last pocket under IS control near Albu Kamal".

Hajin, which lies roughly 20 miles north of Albu Kamal, has been under siege by U.S-backed paramilitaries known as the Syrian Democratic Forces - the constellation of Arab and Kurdish militias who were critical in driving ISIS from its Syrian capital of Raqqa late past year.

Four of the missiles were the Zulfiqar, which have a range of 750 kilometers (466 miles); two of the missiles were the Qiam, which have a range of 800 kilometers (497 miles).

He also commented on the recent video released by BBC showing various slogans - such as "Death with Israel", "Down with the house of Saud" and "Death to Israel" - written on Iranian missiles that were reportedly launched Monday. A state TV-aired graphic suggested the missiles flew over central Iraq near the city of Tikrit before landing near the city of Abu Kamal, in the far southeast of Syria.

The parade attack on September 22, 2018, concluded about 25 people including soldiers of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and civilian bystanders have died which has been claimed by the IS and ethnic Arab separatists from Ahvaz.

The missile strike "was only a jab against these criminals". "The main punishment is on the way", Rezaie, who is secretary of the Expediency Council, an unelected arbitration body that resolves disputes between parliament and a clerical vetting body, the Guardian Council, wrote.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the highest authority in Iran, said last week that the militants responsible for the Ahvaz attack were paid by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and that Iran would "severely punish" those behind the violence. They have nearly no territory remaining except for a small piece of eastern Syria and the militants appear to have very little combat power left.

"We hope that petrodollars and political jobbery between regional states and some extremist groups would not obstruct serious fight against terrorism", he said. Iran's supreme leader has called out the two Arab nations by name, accusing them of being behind the September 22 attack on the parade in the Iranian city of Ahvaz, something denied by both Riyadh and Abu Dhabi. Iran is the closest ally of the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad and its military advisers work closely with the Syrian army.
