BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said in a new statement that last night’s attack in eastern Syria was only the first stage of their response.
“The first phase of retaliation for the Ahvaz attack has been completed; there will be other stages,” the Chief of Staff of the IRGC, General Mohammad Bagheri said.
The IRGC’s aerospace forces fired a half dozen surface-to-surface missiles towards the Islamic State’s (ISIS) stronghold in the eastern part of the Euphrates River Valley of Syria.
Following the missile strikes, the IRGC utilized seven attack drones to bomb the Islamic State’s positions.
The IRGC said this attack resulted in the death of several Islamic State terrorists, including a number of leaders.
This latest IRGC strike was carried out in retaliation for the Islamic State’s Ahvaz terrorist attack, which killed at least 25 people, including several handicapped veterans and children.
