Iran Strikes Syria, Targets Parade Attack Ringleaders

(Bloomberg) -- Iran’s Revolutionary Guards fired several surface-to-surface ballistic missiles into Syria early Monday, saying they were targeting ringleaders of last month’s attack on a military parade in the southwestern city of Ahvaz.

Six missiles were fired from a distance of 570 kilometers while seven drones bombarded the positions of the terrorists in Syria, Islamic Republic News Agency reported. Some of the leaders of the September 22 attack were killed or wounded and their ammunition stockpiles destroyed, the agency said, without giving details.

The strike wounded a number of “takfiri terrorists and ringleaders,” state-backed Press TV reported, referring to Sunni Islamist militants. It also published a photograph of what it called the "revenge strike."
