Jun 18, 2017

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards has fired ground-to-ground missiles from western Iran into eastern Syria, aiming at the bases of militant groups Iran holds responsible for attacks in Tehran which left 18 dead last week, the Tasnim news agency reported.

“The spilling of any pure blood will not go unanswered,” the Revolutionary Guards said in a statement, according to Tasnim.

This was the first operational use of mid-range missiles by Iran since the war with Iraq, which ended in 1988.
