Iran Launches Missiles Into Eastern Syria

Iran Launches Missiles Into Eastern Syria”

Iran's paramilitary group, launched a series of ballistic missiles at Islamic State targets in Syria on Sunday in an apparent retaliation for the ISIS's earlier attack on the Iranian capital.

Media reports said this marked the first time Iran had fired missiles as an act of war since the end of the Iran-Iraq war in 1988.

Iranian Revolutionary Guards launched the mid-range ground-to-ground missiles from western Iran into the Deir al Zour region of eastern Syria, killing a "large number" of terrorists and destroying their equipment and weapons, it said.

The launch of surface-to-surface medium range missiles into Syria's Deir Ezzor province comes as ISIL militants fleeing a US-led coalition onslaught increasingly try to fortify their positions there.

"The spilling of innocent blood will not go unanswered", said the IRGC in a statement.

Apple is changing that with iOS 11 on the iPad, and we think it was certainly the most impressive thing to come out of WWDC 2017. I mostly discovered that I've still got a ton of calculator apps on there, for whatever reason, and a lot of writing apps, too.

It is unclear how many missiles were fired, although a video recording uploaded to the internet allegedly shows one of the missiles passing through the night sky.

On June 7, 23 people were killed and scores injured in attacks claimed by Daesh on Iran's parliament building and the shrine of Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic.

The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the assaults.

Senior Iranian officials, however, have pointed a finger at Saudi Arabia, Iran's Sunni regional rival.
