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.

"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.
