Monday Attack on Terrorists First Stage of RevengeMonday Attack on Terrorists First Stage of Revenge

The top Iranian general said IRGC’s Monday missile and drone attacks on terrorists’ positions in Syria were just the first stage of Tehran’s retaliation against those who sponsored and orchestrated a recent raid on a military parade in Ahvaz, Khuzestan Province, which killed 25 and wounded dozens more.

Chairman of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri made the remarks on Monday, hours after the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said it had targeted terrorist positions to the east of the river Euphrates, near the Albu Kamal town on Syria’s eastern border with Iraq, Press TV reported.

Baqeri also vowed that “there will be other stages of revenge as well”.

He noted that the missiles and drones flew long distances before hitting the terrorists’ hideouts in Syria. 

“Several high-profile terrorists were killed during the attacks. It [the attack] showed that the security of Iranian people is a redline for the Leader, the Armed Forces and the country’s ruling system,” Baqeri said.
