  • Iran Missile Strike Missed Target — Times of Israel

Activists in Syria did not immediately have information about the Iranian-claimed strikes.

"Medium-range missiles were fired from the (western) provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdestan, and a large number of terrorists were killed and weapons destroyed", the Guard said in a statement published on its Sepahnews website this Sunday.

The missiles flew over Iraq before striking what the Guard called an Islamic State command center and suicide vehicle bomb operation in Deir el-Zour, according to Tehran. It was "a flop", said Yaari. "A failure." Still, "it photographed well".

Iran's recent strike on the Islamic State was also a signal to the US that the country's missile program will not be deterred by sanctions, according to Iranian parliamentarians. There were casualties, said Abu Laila, who is originally from Deir el-Zour and now lives in Germany, where he runs a website about the province.

The Revolutionary Guards said, according to the New York Times, the missile launches "targeted the headquarters and meeting place and suicide auto assembly line of ISIS terrorists" in the province of Deir al-Zour, where Islamic State group forces surround an estimated 200,000 people in a government-held section of the provincial capital of the same name.

The two regional heavyweights back opposing sides in several conflicts including in Syria and Yemen.

"The Saudis and Americans are especially receivers of this message", he said.

Iran's homemade missiles, including some that are capable of hitting Israel or American military bases in the region, are a major point of tension with Washington and Israel.

"Our battlefield will be wherever there is a threat", local media quoted him as saying. While Iran has other ballistic missiles it says can reach longer distances, Sunday's strike appears to be the furthest carried out overseas.

Israel also remains concerned about Iran's missile launches and has deployed a multilayered missile-defense system over fears of potential Iranian attacks.

"And we are also following their words", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

"This is an area in which I think most people can agree Iran was very legitimate in taking defensive action and sending a warning about the fact that the people of Iran and the territory of Iran is and should be and will be completely off limits to terrorists".

"If they carry out a specific action to violate our security, definitely there will be more launches, with intensified strength", Gen. Ramazan Sharif of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) said on Monday, according to state television, cited by AP.

IRGC spokesman Ramezan Sharif said some of the missiles were of the "Zolfaqar" type, a precision-guided missile with a range of almost 750 km unveiled past year. Ya'ari said it was a failure.

Separately, Fox News has learned more about the Iranian missiles fired into eastern Syria yesterday.

"The regime is trying to reach the oil province of Deir-ez-Zor through Raqqa", Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said.

"Firing these missiles from 600 or 700 kilometers away onto a small building... demonstrates Iran's capacity and intelligence capabilities" against jihadist groups, he added.

Some Iran observers believe the strikes were coordinated with a speech earlier in the day by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
