Iran's Revolutionary Guard strikes Syria for Tehran attacks

"The US has always wanted to overthrow the Islamic establishment of Iran". They also said that Syria is a complex region in which the Assad regime, Russia, Turkey, Iran, Israel and the us, with its allies, have carried out air or missile strikes to achieve different and competing objectives.

Israel, although not explicitly mentioned, has been the focus of constant threats by Iran - both directly and indirectly - via its support for Hezbollah and Hamas.

However, senior Iranian officials have shifted the blame on Saudi Arabia, asserting that the Islamic kingdom was promoting "terrorist attacks in Iran".

Yesterday the IRGC fired six Zolfaghar ballistic missiles into Syria.

It claimed the attack killed a "big number of terrorists" and damaged their equipment and weapons. State television footage showed the missiles on truck missile launchers in the daylight before being launched at night.

Izadi said Sunday's strike on Deir Ezzor, halfway between Iranian and Israeli territory, was also meant as a message to Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu, "who regularly threatens Iran".

Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Israel was not anxious by Sunday's strike.

"We are prepared, we have no concerns or worries".

Portugal and Mexico draw 2-2 in Confederations Cup
Mexico captain Andres Guardado towed the same line and was adamant that technology will be good for the game over the long run. The result leaves hosts Russian Federation top of Group A, following their 2-0 victory over New Zealand yesterday.

Ya'ari noted that Iranian officials, trying to cover up the extent of the failure, have been repeating over and over in the past few hours how successful the missile strike was.

Saudi Arabia struck a giant arms deal with Washington this month during President Donald Trump's visit to the region, which saw him clearly align his administration with Riyadh and lash out against Tehran.

Also, past conduct suggests that Iran's missile strike, even as it shocked most of the world, is predictable behavior and may even have been understated.

According to Iran's IRNA news agency, about 2,000 Iranian soldiers have perished in the war within Iraq and Syria.

Iran's Revolutionary Guard says all six ballistic missiles it launched at Islamic State militants in Syria earlier this week hit their targets.

US -backed opposition fighters said Assad's forces have been attacking them in the northern province of Raqqa and warned that if such attacks continue, the fighters will take action.

Another Hebrew media outlet, Walla news, quoted unnamed "diplomatic sources" also saying that only one or two of the seven Iranian missiles hit their target.

The incident with the Syrian plane began after the USA -backed rebel fighters, called the Syrian Democratic Forces, were attacked by what the American military called "pro-Syrian regime forces".
