Netanyahu warns Iran after Syria missile strike

General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, who heads the Revolutionary Guards' aerospace wing, told state television: "The missiles were fired from Iran and they passed over Iraq and landed in Syria".

The tensions and the complexity of the Syrian civil war have been escalated by the shooting down of a Syrian warplane by a U.S. fighter jet on Sunday and the same-day missile attack by Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps from inside Iran at Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) targets in Syria.

Iran released this photo on June 19, of a missile fired from city of Kermanshah in western Iran and targeting ISIS in Syria. The regional and global sponsors of the terrorists must receive the revealing message of the assault, ' he said.

That Iran would verbally threaten ISIS, Saudi Arabia, the United States and Israel is not new. "Obviously and clearly, some reactionary countries of the region, especially Saudi Arabia, had announced that they are trying to bring insecurity into Iran".

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.

Iran was aiming at terrorists in the ISIS-held Syrian town of Deir ez-Zor after the terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks on the Iranian parliament and at the shrine of Ayatollah Khomeini that killed 18 people, mostly civilians.

That attack marked the first to hit Iran, shocking its residents who believed the chaos engulfing the rest of the Middle East would not find them in the Shiite-majority nation.

Rezaei also called the missile attacks "the message of Iran's authority" to "the supporters of terrorism".

Iran has described the attackers as being "long affiliated with the Wahhabi", an ultraconservative form of Sunni Islam practiced in Saudi Arabia.

The U.S. said it had downed the Syrian jet a day earlier after it dropped bombs near the U.S. -backed Syrian Democratic Forces conducting operations against the Islamic State group, adding that was something it would not tolerate.

The Guard, which is also involved in the fight against the Islamic State group in neighboring Iraq, controls Iran's missile program. Iranian officials complained the new sanctions violate the spirit of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, otherwise known as the Iran nuclear deal, however, ballistic missiles are not included in the agreement.

It also raised questions about how U.S. President Donald Trump's administration, which had previously put Iran "on notice" for its ballistic missile tests, will respond.
