Retaliation for the Ahvaz deadly attack was the primary motive behind Iran’s Monday morning’s ballistic missile attack on militants in Syria, according to Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Bahram Ghasemi, who spoke to the press in Tehran on Monday.

“The military action of the Islamic Republic of Iran in tackling a very specific and well-known centre of terrorists in a special location to the East of Euphrates was in fact a well-defined and coordinated move,” said Ghasemi speaking of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)’s missile operation.

The spokesperson added that the Iranian military action was “so that they [militants] may not dare commit such savage, criminal acts in the Iranian territory to the Iranian nation and to the great people of Iran.”

Ghasemi also tackled Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s disclosure of alleged new evidence of Iran’s nuclear weapons in UN General Assembly on September 27 saying: “His behaviour resembles a joke or a comedy.”

On Saturday, gunmen opened fire from behind the stands of a military parade in Ahvaz commemorating the 38th anniversary of the eight-year Iran-Iraq war. A total of 25 people were killed and 60 injured, making it the deadliest terror attack the country has faced in almost a decade.

Iran’s (IRGC) launched six ballistic missiles from an area close to Kermanshah, targeting militants in Abu Kamal in the Deir ez-Zor Governorate of eastern Syria early Monday morning.

Retaliation for a false flag on their own proxies… Laughable…

With a bit of luck a few US Coalition of Terror advisers were eliminated there as well.There is little probability that ISIS thugs alone could have executed the attack on Iran.

Zarqawi (ISIS founder) hid in Iran before being smuggled in Iraq by IRGC/Quds-Force. Imad Mugniyeh (Hellbollah) trained ISIS… Not that 8 of the 9/11 hijackers also hid in Iran and were close to Mugniyeh…

How d’you think ISIS passed from Iraq to Afgha? By some airliners? Nope, IRGC transported them from Iraq. There is one and only jihad, inter-jihadist disputes are smokescreens. Iran and the Muslim-Brotherhood are allies!
