The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps spokesperson raised the possibility of repetition of missile attacks similar to a recent one against Daesh terrorists in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor, saying Iran’s option would depend on the conduct of the enemies.
Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said Sunday’s missile strike against Daesh in Syria was just a small part of Iran’s reaction to the “indiscriminate” attacks by the terror group on the Iranian soil.
Iran’s missile attack against Daesh in Syria was a crushing response to the terrorist group as well as a message saying that international community should get determined in fighting terrorism, a member of the Iranian Parliament said on Monday.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) launched six missiles at Daesh’s headquarters in eastern Syria in response to terror attacks in Tehran which left 18 dead and more than 50 injured earlier this month.
Iraqi forces took Saturday a border crossing point to Syria from the Daesh terrorist group, increasing pressure on the terrorists and getting closer to meeting up with Syrian forces and their allies who reached the border earlier this month for the first time in years.
