Iran’s latest revenge attack on Syria included not only ballistic missiles, but also armed stealth drones.
The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) launched an attack on a Syrian location of Ahvaz National Resistance, an Iranian-Arab separatist group, consisting of six missiles and seven unarmed craft carrying munitions – all just three miles from U.S. troops, The Drive reported this week. American Military News
Iran’s powerful quasi-military Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) reportedly launched a total of six Qiam and Zulfiqar missiles and seven armed drones to attack members of the Ahvaz National Resistance, an Iranian Arab separatist group, and ISIS terrorists on Oct. 1, 2018. The target area was near the town of Haijin, north of the city of Al Bukamal, the latter of which is situated close to the Iraqi border. Iranian officials did not offer a detailed accounting of the results of the strikes, saying only that they had “killed and wounded” enemy fighters.
Iranian authorities have also accused foreign powers, including Saudi Arabia and the United States, of aiding the militants in Ahvaz and launched its own retaliatory mission into a part of Syria just miles from where American and other coalition forces are operating in the country.
Iranian forces launched ballistic missiles targeting Syrian militants early Monday, an attack that potentially put coalition forces at risk, a Pentagon official said.
A ballistic missile fired by Iranian forces hit an area where U.S. troops and Syrian Democratic Forces are clearing remnants of Islamic State forces out of the Middle Euphrates River Valley.
The Iranian strike in the MERV was confirmed Monday by Cmdr. Sean Robertson, a Pentagon spokesman, in an email to Military Times, who called it “reckless” and “escalatory.”
One of the missiles carried the slogans “Death to America, Death to Israel, Death to Al Saud” in Farsi on its main body.
During the operations codenamed Zarbat-e Moharram (Blow of Moharram) carried out at 2:00 AM (local time) on Monday the headquarters of Takfiri terrorists near Albu Kamal region in Eastern Euphrates was attacked from Kermanshah province in Western Iran, 570km away from the targets.
This comes as the United States terminates the 1955 Iran Treaty: The United States said Wednesday that it was terminating a 1955 treaty reached with then-ally Iran after Tehran cited it in an international court ruling against Washington’s sanctions policy.
This is extremely significant and should be Down Range News, this is a vital move in a dangerous chess game that now allows the U.S. to flex our military might.
Iran responded to the world, to the United States, over the termination of the treaty and they not only threatened the United States, they said America will fall and their actions will be supreme reason.
