BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – The large-scale missile strike conducted by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) against the Islamic State (ISIS) did little to no damage, the U.S. Coalition Spokesperson Colonel Sean Ryan stated on Tuesday, as reported by IHS Janes.
“The assessment that we have seen so far is that there were six missiles that landed,” Col Ryan told reporters yesterday.
“We didn’t see any … damage from those missiles at all. I know that they [the Iranians] claim [the missiles hit their targets] but from what we’ve seen there hasn’t been any damage,” he added.
The IRGC said the missile strikes did considerable damage to the Islamic State’s infrastructure in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.
They would add that their missiles managed to kill more than 40 Islamic State leaders near the border-city of Albukamal.
