Iran sends a message with missile strike in Syria

Iran sends a message with missile strike in SyriaIran has targeted jihadists in Syria with missiles in retaliation for deadly attacks in Tehran, but the strike was also a message to its regional rivals and Washington, experts say. Late Sunday, the elite Revolutionary Guards launched six missiles from western Iran into Syria’s mostly Islamic State group-held Deir Ezzor province, hitting an IS command base, the Guards said. The strike was “revenge” for twin attacks in Tehran on June 7 that killed 17 people in the first IS-claimed attacks inside the Shiite-ruled Islamic republic, a Guards spokesman added.
