Live Footage of IRGC Missiles Hitting Terrorist Positions Sent to Iran by UAVs: Commander
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force highlighted the pinpoint accuracy of the missiles that targeted terrorists’ positions in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor on Sunday, saying drones provided live footage from the missiles when they hit the terrorists.
The missiles were launched from Iran and landed in Syria after flying over Iraqi airspace, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said in remarks released on Monday.
Several drones that had been deployed to Deir ez-Zor from Damascus provided live footage from the moments of impact, he added.
The commander further emphasized that all the missiles successfully hit their targets.
If the foreign-baked terrorists in Syria continue their evil deeds, they will pay a heavy price for their acts, he warned, referring to recent terrorist attacks in the Iranian capital of Tehran which were claimed by the Daesh (ISIS or ISIL) terrorist group.
In an operation codenamed “Laylat al-Qadr” on Sunday night, the IRGC fired six mid-range ballistic missiles within a range of 650 to 700 kilometers at various targets, including the headquarters, ammunition and logistic depots of the terrorists.
Speaking to the Tasnim News Agency, Head of the IRGC Public Relations Department General Ramezan Sharif said, “The firing of these missiles had previously been coordinated with Syria.”
He also emphasized that the missile attacks were carried out in response to the recent Daesh-claimed terror attacks in Tehran, adding that Zolfaqar high-precision missiles were among those used in the attack.
The IRGC public relations office statement said Sunday that the missiles were fired from the IRGC aerospace force’s bases in Iran’s western provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdistan.
