    Iran's Revolutionary Guard fired ground-to-ground missiles into eastern Syria, targeting terrorist bases.

    Iran's forces announced that a large number of terrorists were killed by its missile attack in Deir Ezzor, Syria, AFP reported.

    "A missile strike on militants' positions is a warning to terrorists. In case if attacks on Iran continue, the flame of our justifiable anger will burn terrorists to ashes," the Revolutionary Guards said in a statement.

    Iranian forces have eliminated a significant number of militants, in addition to their outfits and weapons, the IRGC reported, as quoted by the Tasnim news agency.

    ​The attack was carried out as a response to Tehran attacks, which resulted in 18 dead.
