Iran's Revolutionary Guard strikes Syria for Tehran attacks

Orlando Vargas | 28 June, 2017, 04:49

After firing missiles targeting the Islamic State group in eastern Syria, Iran's Revolutionary Guard on Monday issued a stark warning to IS militants, saying that any future attack against Iran will result in more powerful launches.

The Revolutionary Guards said, according to the New York Times, the missile launches "targeted the headquarters and meeting place and suicide auto assembly line of ISIS terrorists" in the province of Deir al-Zour, where Islamic State group forces surround an estimated 200,000 people in a government-held section of the provincial capital of the same name.

The paramilitary force 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.

Earlier, Iran had implicitly suggested that the US and Saudi Arabia, its chief regional foe, had insinuated the terrorist attacks in Tehran.

Iran vowed quick revenge after ISIS suicide bombers and gunmen stormed the parliament and the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini on June 7, killing 18 and injuring at least 56.

"The Saudis and Americans are especially receivers of this message", Gen. Ramazan Sharif of Iran's Revolutionary Guard told state television.

The Revolutionary Guards immediately placed blame on Riyadh after the June 7 attacks, with Saudi Arabia rejecting the claims.

Iraqi lawmaker Abdul-Bari Zebari said his country agreed to the missile overflight after coordination with Iran, Russia and Syria.

The Deir ez-Zor province would provide the Iranian Regime with a key border crossing in order to facilitate the movement of weapons, money and troops between terrorist groups across the Middle East and Iran. Iran and Saudi Arabia have always been embroiled in a sectarian feud.

"The military and our security forces are constantly monitoring the activity of Iran in the region", Netanyahu said, according to a statement released by the Likud. The missiles flew over Iraq before striking eastern Syria.

"The SDF is getting big-headed", said the pro-Damascus military commander, a non-Syrian who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity. "There was no operational need to attack ISIS from within Iranian territory".

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the main opposition, is planning a conference in Washington to provide information about Iran's missile program which is advancing at a rapid pace.

The area is of strategic significance to Tehran as it seeks to secure a land corridor to its allies in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon and establish a "Shi'ite crescent" of influence that has long concerned US -allied states in the Middle East.
