Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) launched a missile strike against militant positions in the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor, from Iran on Sunday evening, with the footage broadcast on state television.

Iran launched the attack in retaliation for recent twin attacks on the Iranian parliament and Ayatollah Khomeini's mausoleum that killed 18 people.

IRGC general and Commander of the IRGC Aerospace Forces, Amirali Hajizadeh, said that "our enemy should know that Tehran is not London and Paris" and "if they continue their wickedness it will have an expensive result."

On Sunday, the IRGC announced that they had launched missile strikes targeting "terrorists" in the Deir ez-Zor province.

SOT, General Amirali Hajizadeh, Commander of the Aerospace Division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (Farsi): "Launching missiles from a distance of 600-700 kilometres and landing them on a small building: this is a message which means that they should know where the power of Iranians is."
