Iran's Revolutionary Guard has launched a series of missile strikes on eastern Syria over Islamic State-claimed attacks on Tehran

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.

McIlroy and Day get the weekend off
Harman, a two-time PGA Tour victor from Georgia, said, "I was pretty nervous this morning and I got off to a little shaky start". The No. 2-ranked McIlroy and the third-ranked Day also failed to advance to move after struggling for a second straight day.


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.
