BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said on Tuesday that the IRGC strike near the U.S. troops in eastern Syria had sent a message to Washington.

“Our aerospace forces sent you [the Americans] an important signal when they fired rockets at facilities three miles [about 5 km] from you,” Shamkhani said, as quoted by the Tasnim News Agency.

On Monday morning, the IRGC’s aerospace forces fired at least a half dozen surface-to-surface missiles towards the Islamic State’s (ISIS) positions in the Albukamal countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

The IRGC would follow up this attack by launching a big drone strike on the Islamic State’s positions.

According to the Iranian Ministry of Defense, the IRGC attack resulted in the death of more than 40 Islamic State leaders.

Three miles away from US BASE ISIS was allowed to flourish. Thank you IRAN.

The eponymous Shamkhani is indeed living the sham until Iran does the dirty deed and directly eradicates the western cancer growing within Syria. It wouldn’t take so much effort to rout the USSA/Yid presence as they only have the stomach to pick on weaklings. Drunken chabad-controlled Russians apparently are not up to the task.

Bah, all is needed is a single strike with an ultra high temperature thermobaric…
As usual, just cut the head of the snake.

Yeah, go on! Shoot your missiles at the Yanks and us!
C’mon, just do it! Let’s see if you dare! Oh, BTW… S-300’s radars don’t work with Rafale, not even the S-400 ones. Stealth is far more advanced than F-35, F-22 or B-2 and can be switched on/off. Come out and play with Charles the Hammer again.

And what message did it sent? That Yankees are right to have put sanctions back and to consider maximum pressure? That Iran is playing with fire and gonna get burnt? That IRGC wants the Yankees to put a regime change on the Table?
They’d better not forget a point : starting a war in the 2nd half of your mandate is the best way to be re-elected as POTUS…

I think the message is; even though the US have trained and funded ISIS ( israeli secret intelligence service ), we are quite capable of destroying them with our missiles from hundreds of miles away, while you sit idly by in your training camps nearby.
He then went on to blow a huge raspberry 🙂

Actually, ISIS fought US in Iraq from 2003 to 2011 when these left. They were trained by Imad Mugniyeh (Hezbollah). ISIS = Iranian Secret Inghimasi Scüm. I would like to see Khamenei shooting his ballistic missiles at the Yankees’ bases all around the Gulf. I prepare popcorn to see their reaction… Just remember what followed Pearl Harbour… And Japs hadn’t a 40-50 years technological gap with a population chanting “Death to Tojo Hideki” at the football stadium. The most amusing being 98% of Iranians not even intending Friday prayers in mosques, thus being one of the 2 most irreligious people… Read more »
