'Missiles were fired from Iran; they passed through Iraq and hit targets in Syria and all the operation has been monitored with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), Hajizade said.
Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) announced Sunday night that it had carried out a missile attack against the headquarters and logistics of the Takfiri terrorists in Deir Ez-Zor, the largest city in eastern Syria, to punish perpetrators of recent terror attacks in Tehran.
Hajizade went on to say that all missiles hit the targets exactly.
'Tehran is not London or Paris and the enemies should know that this was just a small operation and if they make the smallest mistake, much sharper blows will be given to them.'
'Gathering intelligence about these terrorists is a big problem and targetting them from 700 km away and hitting exactly a small building convey a message and makes them gauge Iran's power.'
After the Takfiri terrorists’ June 7 attacks in Tehran which left 18 killed and dozens more wounded, the IRGC had announced that the spilling of innocent blood will not go unanswered
“During the operation, a number of ground-to-ground mid-range missiles targeted Takfiri terrorists from IRGC’s bases in Kermanshah and Kordestan provinces, western Iran.”
