Iran said on Sunday it launched missiles into Syria targeting ISIL positions in response to last week's attacks in Tehran which killed 23 people.
Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps issued a statement, saying that it launched surface-to-surface medium-range missiles into Syria's northeastern Deir el-Zour province where ISIL terrorists have a presence.
Sunday’s statement said the strikes came from bases in western Iran and claimed that many terrorists were killed and their weapons destroyed.
