Iran fired missiles into eastern Syria Sunday targeting ISIS positions in retaliation for the terrorist groups’ attacks in Tehran early June.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard launched mid-range ground-to-ground missiles from western Iran into eastern Syria Sunday, mainly hitting the Deir al Zour region. The Revolutionary Guard claimed the attacks were a success, killing terrorists and destroying weapons, it stating following the attacks “Medium-range missiles were fired from the (western) provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdestan, and a large number of terrorists were killed and weapons destroyed.”

Iran reportedly fired Shahab-3 ballistic missiles, in the country’s first missile attack in over 30 years since the Iraq-Iran War.

On June 7, ISIS gunmen and a suicide bomber carried out twin attacks in Tehran, killing 13 and injuring over 40. The attacks were carried out on Iran’s parliament building and a Khomeini mausoleum.
