A tiny example of Iran’s punitive power: Mission Accomplished, IRGC Says after Missile Raid on Terrorists in Syria

 The missiles the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps launched on terrorists in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor late Sunday have successfully annihilated their targets, IRGC spokesman said on Monday, describing the operation as only a small example of Iran’s punitive power.


Head of the IRGC Public Relations Department General Ramezan Sharif announced on Monday morning that the six ground-to-ground missiles the IRGC fired at Syria’s eastern region of Deir ez-Zor on Sunday night have “destroyed the command bases and ordnance centers of Daesh.”

Last night, six missiles were fired from the IRGC aerospace force’s bases in Iran’s western provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdistan.

The missile raid was made in retaliation for a recent terrorist attack in Tehran claimed by Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group.

Elsewhere in his comments, General Sharif said the launch of missiles from two of Iran’s predominantly Sunni provinces signaled the message of “Iran’s unity against terrorists.”


  • “The IRGC’s missile operation was only a tiny example of Iran’s punitive power over the terrorists and enemies,” the spokesman added.


He also recommended the “regional and international sponsors of terrorists to get the warning message of the missile operation.”


  • Videos of the missiles being launched from Iran’s western province of Kermanshah show the roaring projectiles illuminating a residential area before streaking across the sky.


During the operation codenamed ‘Laylat al-Qadr’, the IRGC fired six missiles, including Zolfaqar high-precision missiles, a mid-range ballistic missile, at various targets in Deir ez-Zor within a range of 650 to 700 kilometers.

  1. The Iranian Foreign Ministry affirmed on Monday that the targeting of terrorists’ sites in Deir Ezzor by Iran was in coordination with the Syrian government and within the context of Iran’s firm policy of fighting terrorism.

    Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said that the targeting of terrorist sites in Deir Ezzor was carried out with the prior knowledge of Syrian government and within the framework of the principled and firm policy of Iran in combating takfiri Wahhabi movements.

    He added that the Deir Ezzor operation was just a “small slap” and a warning to those who cannot or do not want to understand the realities of the region and do not know their limits.

    He asserted that the fight against terrorism is part of the defense of the security and stability of the region and the security of Iran, which will spare no effort in fighting terrorists and will not compromise when it comes to defending its stability and security.

  2. Limited missile attack just part of Iran’s armed forces combat ability...

    Limited missile attack is just part of Iran’s armed forces deterrence and combat ability, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Army Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said.

    Pourdastan pointed to Iran's recent missile attack on terrorists in eastern Syria, and said, 'Today, defense power is not restricted to geographical borders, but it engulfs any place under threat.'

    He warned the world to be aware of the fact that Iran is ready to act whenever it is required.

    Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) announced Sunday night that it had carried out a missile attack against the headquarters and logistics of the Takfiri terrorists in Deir Ez-Zor, the largest city in eastern Syria, to punish perpetrators of recent terror attacks in Tehran.

    After the Takfiri terrorists’ June 7 attacks in Tehran which left 17 killed and dozens more wounded, the IRGC had announced that the spilling of innocent blood will not go unanswered.

    “During the operation, a number of surface-to-surface mid-range missiles targeted Takfiri terrorists from IRGC's bases in Kermanshah and Kordestan provinces, Western Iran.”
