Iran launches missiles into eastern Syria

The missiles were fired from western Iran across the border into Deir Ezzor province, in northeastern Syria, targeting what the Guard called "terror bases".

Iran's Revolutionary Guards have launched a mid-range ballistic missile attack on terrorist positions in the Syrian province of Deir-ez Zor in retaliation for terrorist attacks in Tehran, Tasnim news agency reports.

It was the first missile attack by Iran outside its own territory in 30 years, since the Iran-Iraq war of 1980-88, media in the Islamic republic reported. "In case if attacks on Iran continue, the flame of our justifiable anger will burn terrorists to ashes", the Revolutionary Guards said in a statement.

The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the assaults.

France begins voting in second round of parliamentary election
Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, a center-right politician who joined Macron's movement, cast his ballot in the port of Le Havre. The hard-left France Unbowed is also struggling to maintain the momentum it had during the presidential election.


The Guard warned ISIL militants and their "regional and worldwide supporters" that similar retaliatory attacks would target them as well if another assault in Iran occurred.

Five Islamic State-linked attackers stormed Iran's parliament and a shrine to revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini this month, killing at least 17 people and wounding more than 50.

Shiite-majority Iran and Sunni-majority Saudi Arabia have long had a sectarian feud.

The attack also came as emboldened Sunni Arab states - backed by U.S. President Donald Trump - are hardening their stance against Iran.
