IRGC Missile Attack A Warning to Foolish Troublemakers: Iranian General
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Army’s lieutenant commander said the missile strike the IRGC launched against Daesh (ISIL) terrorists in Syria last night has delivered a warning to the troublemakers seeking to trigger tensions.
The “limited missile raid” by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps against terrorist positions in Syria’s eastern region of Deir ez-Zor unveiled part of the Iranian Armed Forces’ assault and deterrent capabilities, Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said Monday.
The strike was also a “crushing response and a warning” to those seeking to ignite tensions with their troublemaking and ignorant ambitions, he added.
Late on Sunday, the IRGC fired six missiles, including high-precision Zolfaqar missiles, at various targets in Deir ez-Zor within a range of 650 to 700 kilometers.
The missile raid, described by the IRGC as a successful operation, was in retaliation for a recent terrorist attack in Tehran claimed by Daesh.
