Iran fires missiles into Syria in revenge for attacks

Iran's Revolutionary Guards have launched a mid-range ballistic missile attack on terrorist positions in the Syrian province of Deir-ez Zor in retaliation for terrorist attacks in Tehran, Tasnim news agency reports.

IRGC forces have been assisting in the fight against ISIS in both Iraq and Syria, but the missile strike represents a significant escalation in Iran's involvement.

A Guard statement carried on its website said many "terrorists" were killed and their weapons had been destroyed in the strike.

Iranian television showed footage of the missiles being launched into the night sky. Iran identifies Islamic State militants as "Takfiri terrorists".

Iran has described the attackers as being "long affiliated with the Wahhabi", an ultraconservative form of Sunni Islam practiced in Saudi Arabia.

The Islamic republic of Iran is a key ally of the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad, alongside Russian Federation and the Iran-backed Hezbollah movement of Lebanon. Iran has arrested dozens of terrorists since the Tehran attacks. The rivals are on opposite sides of violent conflicts in Syria, Yemen and elsewhere.
