Iran Launches Medium-Range Ground-To-Ground Missiles On ISIS Targets In Deir Ezzor, Sends Signal To US-Backed Forces In Syria (Video)

Donate

Following the incident with downing of a Syrian Air Force Su-22 warplane by the US warplane, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) launched medium-range ground-to-ground missiles at ISIS targets in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor.

According to the IRGC, the missiles were launched from the western Iranian provinces of Kermanshah and Kordestan, flied through Iraq’s airspace and hit terrorists targets in Syria.

Iran reportedly used Zolfaqar missiles, recently supplied to the IRGC.

The Iranian state-run media argued that a high number of ISIS terrorists were killed as a result of the attack. However, no numbers were provided.

The IRGC statement said that the missile strike was a response to the recent ISIS-claimed terrorist attack in Tehran.

However, it’s clear that this missile strike was a message to the US-led coalition and US-backed forces in Syria. The Deir Ezzor missile strike shows that Iran is capable to conduct a missile strike on joint garrisons of the US-led coalition forces and US-backed militant groups located near the villages of At Tanf and al-Zquf at the border with Iraq.

    • Thegr8rambino

      excuse me??? i do not appreicate your comment, as i am of persian heritage

      • Solomon Krupacek

        iran will not do this.

        • Alex Black

          not now, but things change.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            no chance. iran is simply not in 1 category with germany, usa is for them another universe.

          • Alex Black

            the difference between nuclear iran and not nuclear iran is 2 hours of changing warheads on missiles.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            yes. and from where get the nuclear warheads? :D you should write political scifi. :D

          • Alex Black

            Iran is believed to have 4 in their possession from the Ukraine bazar.

          • zman

            There was speculation that Iran bought several nukes from France in the mid 70s as protection from the USSR when they attacked Iraq and took smaller countries by surprise. The US was said to have thought about attacking Iran(their ally) because they threatened the KSA. The US did nothing because the Iranians made clear to the US that they had nukes from France. As nothing happened, military wise, from the US, most assumed it to be true, as France could have assured the US of the truth, one way or the other. The US did nothing. If the US (or Israel, Irans ally at the time) did not, somehow, obtain these possible nukes during the chaos that was Iran at the time, it is possible that they do indeed have some nukes. 1 is all it takes for Israel.

        • Thegr8rambino

          they just did idiot

    • adzsiam

      Has anyone ever considered if these missiles did indeed hit their targets or not?! The end result would lay a lot of speculation to rest about ‘who is going to do what’ and ‘in what way.’

      • Solomon Krupacek

        this was the mai reason

        The IRGC statement said that the missile strike was a response to the recent ISIS-claimed terrorist attack in Tehran.

        the second was to test the missiles.

        third was not

      • BlueInGreen

        They did. With pin-point accuracy.

        click the link and watch the vids, they were just released.

    Iran will never launch a missile attack against US forces or US allies. Because that will mean a US invasion (supported by Israel and the KSA+UAE+lapdogs) and we all know what happens to Iran then.

    • John Whitehot

      invading Iran today is pretty close to invade Japan during WW2. The US political power is not in the position of explaining something like that to the public and to the military.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        bullshit,like your predictions with russan supermacy in syria.

        • Alex Black

          Who would be this force that would invade Iran? Why do you think they would be successful?

          • Solomon Krupacek

            they dont need invade. it is enough 2 days, 400 planes and 1000 tomahawks and iranis back in middle age.
            remember bekaa valley. in 4 hours 200 israeli jets destroyed the complet syrian army in lebanon.
            i remeber, this battle was the reason, why fall the generals in ussr, and came to might gorbachew with perestroika.

            iran has no modern airforce, no modern defense system. what russia sold them is old, dumb export version. iran would end like bekaa valey.

          • Concrete Mike

            I doubt you can subdue Iran from the air only, espicially is they have plenty of ballistic missiles, Its most likely they have more toys to show . Air Power has limited usés, and do you honestly think Iran hasent protected their assets n’y building some underground bunkers. Clearly your an amateur, as I am.

          • John Whitehot

            There are too few Benzos and BMWs in Iran, which for this user equates to a population that is not able to defend its country.

          • Alex Black

            I don’t think you are correct, traumatic memory.

          • John Whitehot

            if they keep the proportion they had in Syria, about 800 tomahawks will lose their targets and “vanish”, along with 280 planes.

            Also, keep listening to Israeli propaganda. It’s among the most hilarious of the entire world, and it’s very indicative on how much the Israeli public and jews in general are being treated like idiots by their own press.

          • Ronald

            You have American battle plan A correct , they have air superiority , they use it without mercy . What we do not know is Iranian air defense , and how long it can hold . and can they take out the US satellites giving them intel .
            We will hope the anti Iran and anti Russian mood will pass , and America will recover from its paranoid delusions .

    • Alex Black

      US would most definitely retaliate, but i am not sure a ground invasion of Iran is in the cards.

    • Manuel Flores Escobar

      Iran attacks US base in Al Tanf…and nothing will happen!…Iran is a military power able to cut ormuz straight and sink saudi arabia!…

      • Solomon Krupacek

        sure. have they anti helium?

      • Brad Isherwood

        Iran has published its land ballistic missiles hit towed targets in the Persian Gulf.
        Saudi Old King and Queen oil fields are water injection via the coastal desalination
        Water plants.
        Destroy those plants….Oilfields will collapse .
        Iranian missile targeting has improved since Lebanon 2006 war.
        Hezbollah can accurately hit targets in Israel.
        This strike by Iran in Dier Ezzor is big wake up call to Israel, Saudi and US,
        Whose USN ships will be going to the bottom if they attack Iran.

    • Thegr8rambino

      russia would not just sit and let that happen to iran either way

      • Solomon Krupacek

        be sure, would do nothing. russia never did enything for his “allies” never.

        • Alex Black

          That is not true, just because Russia doesnt sink a carrier every time someone shoots down a 50 year old jet doesnt mean you are correct.

        • Thegr8rambino

          oh really? what is it doing in syria right now then? clowning around?

          • Solomon Krupacek

            this is not help. no protection against american. russia defends only tartus. nothing else. be sure at least half year ago putin agreed with division of syria. and in this case for syrians is everything wronger, only russia will have naval and airbase.

            otherwise, help is not for money. until today each russian wweapon, each russian bomb dropped, each liter of fuel used by russians was paid. and in advance. this told the russian site, too.

          • Thegr8rambino

            have you not seen the hundreds of articles on here saying how russian air force and army is helping SAA like every single day? they are doing much more than just defending tartus u imbecile

          • Valery Grigoryev

            Even if it’s so – what’s wrong with that?
            Russia is not a mom for the other country.
            An ally – yes.

    • MeThinks

      You spit alot of worthless names. The Arab force to support NATO ps being destroyed, its ISIS. The other Arab force cant get past their front door in Yemen…so fuck off.
      im sure if stuff happens, much unexpected

    • Gabriel Hollows

      An invasion which the US would lose unless they used nuclear weapons. Unlike the Iraqis the Revolitionary Guard is a well trained and highly competent fighting force, with Russian air defense systems and modern weapons.

      Unsupported they could grind the Americans down for years until they end up with another Vietnam situation. With Russian suport they would outright kick them out.

      In both cases Israel is reduced to ashes, which is the main reason the US will never invade Iran before first dealing with China and Russia.

    Looking good.

      yup, if you will be zoroatrisna, then all right. new islamic empire is not needed.

          islamic state of iran ;)

          • Thegr8rambino

            yes and?

          • Gonçalo Pena

            It is always a good thing too keep god in low profile in international affairs.

          • Thegr8rambino

            Why?

          • Valery Grigoryev

            Religion is an instrument for human souls, not for political affairs.

          • Gonçalo Pena

            Because there are many views towards religion and they cannot be reduced to the vision of the other. They cannot be rationalised. And every faith must be respected. (But it is a good question, since god always keeps peeping in the discussions, sometimes as the light reflected in islamic architecture, sometimes as the light of the stained-glass windows of European cathedrals, sometimes as darkness when fanatics behead or burn whom the call heretics). I praise Assad because he is religious tolerant in a region where this is missing!

            of Course there are anti semites here! What do u expect? Israel has repeatedly attacked SAA positions and soldiers! Dont come to a pro Syrian and Russian site and complain about anti-semitism! Israel is just as much an enemy as the US! Even more so! Dont get on ur high horse and speak shit on a po syrian and pro russian site when u know for a fact that this is a US / Israel war! Fuck…. people like u really piss me off!
            Let me get this straight, according to u we can speak poorly about USA or Turkey or Russia or Syria but we cant speak poorly of Israel and their bullshit they have created in the middle east. Go fuck yourself! Jews are scum! END OF STORY!
            Im white, im australian and i hate USA and JEWS! Jews mainly because ive been racially rejected by them in my own country! Wouldnt let me join a gym because its for JEWS only! Fuck the Jews!

    Iran just letting off some steam.. no drama

  • Oh, Dios, qué noticia tan magnífica.

  • Stephen

    Iran is a great power in the Middle East. Iran produces more than 80% defence products in their home country. That is why in the Muslim world Ezrahel only scare from Iran.
