Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) announced here that its aerospace units have targeted the "terrorists" command centers in Syria's Deir ez-Zor with its missiles.

Iran's missile attack on the Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL, Daesh) was a "must" and a demand of the Iranian public, former MP Abolfazl Shakuri says.

The missile operation "is just a very small part of the capability of Iran's punitive force against the terrorists and its enemies", the Islamic Students' News Agency quoted Guards spokesman Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif as telling state TV.

Videos posted on social media by Iranian journalists showed missiles being fired at night time near built-up areas as locals expressed amazement.

"The missiles were launched in coordination with Syria", the IRGC official said.

"The Saudis and Americans are especially receivers of this message", he said.

Sunday's missile strike came amid recent confrontations in Syria between US -backed forces and pro-government factions. The Syrian army said the warplane was on a mission against Islamic State militants when it was shot down.

Iran claimed several terror infrastructures destroyed in the attack.

Iran vowed quick revenge after ISIS suicide bombers and gunmen stormed the parliament and the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini on June 7, killing 18 and injuring at least 56. However, it stopped short of directly blaming the kingdom for the attack, though many in the country expressed suspicion Iran's regional rival had a hand in the attack.

It also raises questions about how U.S. President Donald Trump's administration, which had previously put Iran "on notice" for its ballistic missile tests, will respond.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran is standing on the front line, with powerful countries, in terms of missile power", Boroujerdi said following the attack. It has test-fired a number of missiles since Iran struck the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, including the U.S.

As reporter Anshel Pfeffer observes, this is a "major development" and constitutes the "first operational use of mid-range missiles by Iran since war with Iraq".

While Saudi Arabia has spent billions on American weapons, Iran has developed a range of homemade ballistic missiles - including some that are capable of hitting Israel or American military bases in the region.

The Associated Press reports that Russian Federation said it will treat any USA -led warplanes over Syria's government-controlled areas as potential targets. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
