The IRGC said the strike was delivered as a retaliation for the terrorist attacks in Teheran on June 7. "The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps… a while ago has conducted missile attacks on Takfiri (extremist) terrorists' command centers, gatherings, logistic sites and factories of suicide car bombs in Deir ez-Zor region, east of Syria," the IRGC public relations office said. "A number of mid-range ground-to-ground missiles were fired from the IRGC aerospace force's bases in Iran's western provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdistan".
