Iran launched several ballistic missiles into eastern Syria in the early hours of Monday, targeting militants linked to a recent deadly terrorist attack on a military parade.
The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said in a statement that it carried out the strike in retaliation for the gun attack in the southwestern city of Ahvaz, Khuzestan Province, on Sept. 22 that killed 25 people and wounded 69, IRNA reported.
