Iran hits terrorists’ positions in Iraq, Syria
The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says it has fired barrages of ballistic missiles at Syrian bases of terrorists who were involved in recent attacks in Iran, as well as an Israeli espionage center in the Iraqi Kurdistan region.

against the Mossad center, the statement said, was in retaliation for the
recent assassinations of the resistance front’s commanders, especially those of
the IRGC, by the Zionist regime.
The IRGC also
assured “the great nation of Iran” that it will find "the malicious
terrorist groups" that are active against the Iranian nation “wherever
they are and will punish them for their shameful deeds.”
