Drone footage shows Iranian missiles striking ISIS targets in Syria (VIDEO)
The footage, released on Monday, shows ground-to-ground Zulfiqar ballistic missiles being unleashed on terrorist strongholds in the Syrian province of Deir-ez Zor from the Iranian province of Kermanshah on Sunday.
According to a statement from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), the missile strikes were a direct retaliation for the terrorist attacks in Tehran earlier in June. Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), has claimed responsibility for the assaults which left 18 people dead more than 50 others injured.
The missile strike was coordinated with the Syrian government which Iran is backing in the country’s ongoing bloody civil war.
