Baku, Azerbaijan, June 20
At least 65 terrorists were killed in Iran's recent missile attack against the “Islamic State” (IS, ISIS, ISIL, Daesh) group’s targets in eastern Syria, Press TV reported citing a statement by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
The IRGC fired six medium-range ground-to-ground ballistic missiles into IS bases in Syria’s Dayr al-Zawr on Sunday in retaliation for twin terrorist attacks in the Iranian capital Tehran.
Meanwhile, an IS command and operation center in the eastern Syrian city of Al-Muhasan was also targeted. In the missile strike, more than 15 terrorists were killed, including senior Saudi Daesh commander Sa’ad al-Qosaibi, the statement said.
In a strike on an IS gathering center in the city of al-Mayadin, east of Dayr al-Zawr, 27 terrorists were killed, including three Libyans, and a number of others injured.
