‘40 Daesh leaders killed, all targets destroyed in IRGC's missile strikes’
Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh announced on Tuesday that the IRGC's missile strikes against the terrorist targets in Syria on Monday killed 40 Daesh commanders and smashed all targets.
"In these combined operations, we used drones in addition to missiles and based on images we have received, all targets have been destroyed and the (US-led) coalition forces have not been hurt," General Hajizadeh said on Tuesday.
He added that intelligence shows that the corpses of other terrorists are still under the rubbles.
General Hajizadeh addressed the countries, including Saudi Arabia, the UAE and the US, which support the terrorists financially and by providing information and arms, and said, "We warn these countries that our tolerance is limited."
He added that Iran shows rapid reaction to the terrorists' moves but is patient with the governments, noting, "But they are not aware of the threshold of our tolerance and therefore, they should not take the risk."
"The security of the Iranian nation is the redline of our officials," General Hajizadeh said.
The IRGC fired 6 ballistic ground-to-ground missiles and launched drone attacks on terrorists' positions in Eastern Euphrates region in Eastern Syria in revenge for the September 22 Takfiri terrorist attacks in Iran’s southwestern city of Ahwaz, which claimed the lives of dozens of Iranian people.
During the IRGC’s operations codenamed Zarbat-e Moharram (Blow of Moharram) carried out at 2:00 AM (local time) on Monday the headquarters of Takfiri terrorists near Albu Kamal region in Eastern Euphrates was attacked from Kermanshah Province in Western Iran, 570km away from the targets.
The missiles were of Zolfaqar and Qiam classes with ranges of respectively 750km and 800km and precision-striking capability. At least one of the missiles bore slogans 'Death to America', 'Death to Israel', 'Death to Ale Saud' and a Quranic verse meaning 'fight against the friends of Satan'. They travelled over the Iraqi airspace and hit Eastern Euphrates region in Syria.
Then a few minutes after the missile strikes, 7 IRGC drones targeted the terrorists' positions in the region again.
