Islamic Revolution Guards Corps' drones have destroyed several bases of the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group on the Syrian border with Iraq. State television reported on Sunday that during the IRGC operations carried out in Syria's eastern Deir al-Zor Province, many terrorists were killed in the attacks, which also destroyed large amounts of terrorists' equipment and weapons, Press TV reported. The report noted that the attacks were part of operations aimed at clearing the Syria-Iraq border of IS terrorists. In June, the IRGC fired six medium-range ground-to-ground ballistic missiles at IS positions in Deir al-Zor in retaliation for twin terrorist attacks targeting Tehran, which killed 18 people. On June 7, gunmen mounted almost simultaneous assaults on Iran's Parliament and the mausoleum of the late founder of Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini. IS claimed responsibility for the assaults.
