Iran fired missiles on Sunday into eastern Syria, aiming at the bases of ISIS militants it holds responsible for attacks in Tehran which left 18 dead last week warning that it would retaliate on anyone else carrying out attacks in Iran.

Iranian Revolutionary Guards launched the surface-to-surface medium range missiles from western Iran into the Deir al Zour region of eastern Syria, killing a “large number” of terrorists and destroying their equipment and weapons, Iran’s Tasnim news agency reported.

The missiles targeted the “headquarters and gathering centers of Takfiri terrorists supporting and building car bombs,” it said.

Activists in Syria said they had no immediate information on damage or casualties from the strikes.

Sunday’s assault marked an extremely rare direct attack from the Islamic Republic amid its support for embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad, Fox News reported. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, a hard-line paramilitary force, has seen advisers and fighters killed in the conflict.

A Guard statement carried on its website said many “terrorists” were killed and their weapons had been destroyed in the strike.

“The spilling of any pure blood will not go unanswered,” the Revolutionary Guards said in the statement quoted by Tasnim.

The attack last week, which included shootings and at least one suicide bombing, was on Iran’s parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, Reuters reported.

Crazy times folks.
