Iran warns missile attack on IS in Syria can be repeated

Iran warns missile attack on IS in Syria can be repeated

On June 7, seventeen people had been killed while 52 others were injured in a series of attacks with one targeting Iran's parliament and the other one at Imam Khomeini Mausoleum.

"They can not slap us". USA warplanes have also carried out several strikes against pro-government forces over the past few weeks. The national TV showed footages of missile attacks launched from western Iran.

The missile strike came hours after supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in a statement vowed Iran would "slap its enemies" in honour of the families of victims, including those killed in Syria and Iraq.

The video has been viewed more than 170,000 times.

"This revolutionary action and punishment is absolutely clear".

There was no official reaction from Syria, which has been backed by Iran as it seeks to force Islamic State forces off of its territory. The regional and global sponsors of the terrorists must receive the revealing message of the assault, ' he said. Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attacks. Iranian leaders have accused Saudi Arabia of involvement in the twin attacks, which Riyadh denies.

"The missile launches from the two Sunni-majority provinces at headquarters of Daesh terrorists carry the massage of unity of all Iranians in the face of terrorists", Sharif added.

The Iranian Islamic revolutionary guards Corps said that the rocket attacks in Syria militants "Islamic state" will be repeated in the case of the actions of extremists against the security of Iran.

The US Senate last week passed tough sanctions on Iran for its alleged "continued support of terrorism".

Tehran has provided advisers, fighters, volunteers, militias, weapons and money to pro-government forces in Syria but it has never targeted the country with this kind of strike in the past.

"Those who have done wrong will find out what they have coming to them", Qasem Soleimani wrote.

"There has not been, nor will there will be a better government for settlements than ours", Netanyahu said.

Sunday's development comes just over a week after Syrian troops and allied forces reached the Iraqi border in southeastern Syria and almost three weeks after Iraq's paramilitary forces reached the Syrian border in northeastern Iraq. Iran has been aiding the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and is a key ally to the Syrian forces alongside Russian Federation and the Iranian-backed Hezbollah movement.

Clashes between Syrian troops and the SDF would escalate tensions and open a new front line in the many complex battlefields of the civil war, now in its seventh year.

It was the first attack by IS on Iran.

A day after the USA military shot down a Syrian warplane for the first time, Russia's Defense Ministry sent out a clear message Monday, June 19.
