Iran’s Revolutionary Guard announced on Sunday that it launched several missiles into Syria, targeting ISIS fighters in retaliation for the attacks in Tehran on June 7th.

“In this operation, several ground-to-ground mid-range missiles were fired from IRGC bases in Kermanshah Province and targeted Takfiri forces in the Deir Ezzor region in Eastern Syria,” the IRGC said in a statement published on its official news website, Sepah News.

The IRGC uses the term Takfiri to describe ISIS.
