Yesterday, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards launched a ballistic missile attack on terrorist targets in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor Governorate.
The attack on ISIS targets is of course legal as Iran is a member of the Syrian led anti-terrorist coalition which includes Russia. The attack also came as the Iranian and Chinese navies were conducting joint military drills in the Persian Gulf.
Iran clearly wanted to send a strong message that US, Israel and Saudi intimidation would not deter Iran from exercising its legal right to self-defence along with its regional allies.
Iran’s Perss TV has released this amateur video from Syria showing the moment Iranian missiles hit their targets.
