Iran's Revolutionary Guard strikes Syria for Tehran attacks

A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on June 18- aftab

"It was necessary that Iran gave such response to the IS after their recent terror attacks in Tehran".

Iran 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.

ISIL, which stands for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, and is also known as ISIS, claimed responsibility for the June 7 attacks on Iran's parliament and the Mausoleum of Ayatollah Khomeini that left 17 people dead.

"The Saudis and Americans are especially receivers of this message", he said.

Speaking to The Times of Israel later Monday, Ya'ari said his information was based on security sources, and that these sources were "amazed" at the poor performance of the Iranian missiles.

Since Trump took office, his administration has put new economic sanctions on those allegedly involved with Iran's missile program as the Senate has voted for applying new sanctions on Iran.

The missile attack on Syria was Iran's first strike outside its own territory in almost 30 years, the Times of Israel reported.

He pointed out that it was the first time that Iranian missile power showed itself to the world on the ground, and stressed that the enemies of the Islamic Republic should know that "in the event of an invasion or violation of worldwide law, they will be confronted with an overwhelming response".

E-cigarettes, which deliver nicotine through an inhaled aerosol, are a double-edged sword, public health experts say. The high school smoking rate in West Virginia is more than double the rate in California.

"Iran is among the world's big powers in the missile field", Mohammad Hossein Baqeri, chief of staff for the Iranian Armed Forces, was quoted as saying on Monday.

"Medium-range missiles were fired from the [western] provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdestan, and a large number of terrorists were killed and weapons destroyed", the Guard said in a statement published on its Sepahnews website on Sunday. Izadi said it was partly intended for a Saudi audience.

Ya'ari noted that Iranian officials, trying to cover up the extent of the failure, have been repeating over and over in the past few hours how successful the missile strike was.

"We follow their actions and we follow their words", Netanyahu said. "Otherwise, you're threatened with the path to hell", according to the Iranian statement.

"He wrote: "[These missile tests are] one of several facts that leave no doubt about the persistence of defiant attitudes and threats to the worldwide community coming out of the Iranian regime".

Boroujerdi said the strike marked "a new phase in the fight against terrorism".

"But the attack shows we are capable of hitting terrorists hundreds of kilometres away".
