At least 65 ISIS terrorists, including several high-ranking intelligence commanders, have been killed in Iran’s recent missile raid against the Islamist terrorist group’s targets in eastern Syria, according to a statement by Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
Four ISIS positions were hit in the missile raid, according to the IRGC statement referenced by open sources, on Tuesday.
The IRGC fired six medium-range ground-to-ground ballistic missiles into ISIS hideouts in Syria’s Dayr al-Zawr on Sunday in retaliation for twin terrorist siege in the Iranian capital Tehran, which killed 17 people and injured over 50 others.
An ISIS weapons and munitions cache in northern Dayr al-Zawr was “precisely struck and completely annihilated,” the statement said, adding that several tanks, military vehicles and suicide cars and a huge number of long-range missiles were destroyed.
The statement also noted that six ISIS terrorists were killed and 10 injured in the attack.
