Watch: Iran fires missiles toward Syria
It was revealed this evening (Monday) that three of the seven missiles that Iran fired on Sunday night at militant groups in eastern Syria landed in Iraq. Another missile missed its target in Mayadin, a city controlled by ISIS, by hundreds of meters. According to Israeli sources, only one missile hit its target in Deir ez-Zor.
Last night, JOL reported that the missiles were fired from western Iran toward bases operated by groups that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards is holding responsible for the deadly terror attacks in Tehran about two weeks ago.
“The spilling of pure blood will not go unanswered,” said the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in a statement. In the twin terror attacks, 18 people were murdered. The attacks included the use of guns and suicide bombers and took place at the Iranian parliament building and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
