(IRNA) The commander of Aerospace Force of the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (IRGC) said on Sunday that one of their missiles hit the target and a gas tank that caused a huge fire.

Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said on the June 18 missile attack on Daesh hit the target but “caused a huge fire that surprised us; and later we found out that the fire was because of the explosion of a gas tanker parked next to the base.”

Hajizadeh added, “80 million Iranians unanimously welcomed the attacks; the welcome wasn’t limited to Iran, though. It was not just the revenge of Iranian martyrs; Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, and Bahrain were delighted, too.”

The IRGC attacked Daesh bases in Deir Ezzur, Syria, on June 18 in response to June 7 terrorist attacks on Tehran, in which 17 people were killed and 56 were injured. Daesh later claimed responsibility for the terror attacks, which were condemned worldwide.

Six surface-to-surface mid-range Zolfaghar ballistic missile were launched from Kordestan and Kermanshah provinces in the west of Iran, targeting Daesh forces in the Syrian; the missiles had successfully hit the targets with precision.

They should send aircraft : it’s more cost effective and Iran still has a lot of old cows like F-4 Phantom-II that carry pretty heavy payload and are absolutely expandable in case of failure or being downed, actually, such old cows are more costly to maintain in the air that most nations have retired them for long.
With things like Chengdu J-10 ($28M) or Mig-35 ($45M) to replace. Moreover, the Israeli technicians that help(ed?) for the F-4s shouldn’t have problems with Chengdu J-10 : it’s nothing else than the definitive version of IAI Lavi.
