Iran's Revolutionary Guard says it fired missiles at terrorists based in eastern Syria Sunday, to retaliate for an attack in Tehran earlier this month. The Guard's website said it launched surface-to-surface medium-range missiles targeting the area. Iran's Revolutionary Guard, a hard-line paramilitary force, has seen advisers and fighters killed in the conflict.
"A missile strike on militants' positions is a warning to terrorists".
"The spilling of any pure blood will not go unanswered", the Revolutionary Guards said in the statement quoted by Tasnim.
Activists in Syria did not immediately have information about the Iranian-claimed strikes.

In a statement Wednesday, Williams said that at about 7 a.m. this morning, a gunman arrived at the practice and opened fire. Barton, of Ennis, south of Dallas, is the manager of the Republican congressional baseball team.
The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the assaults.
The attack last week, which included shootings and at least one suicide bombing, was on Iran's parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic.
It was the first such attack in Iran and shocked Iranians who believed the chaos engulfing the rest of the Middle East would not find them in the Shiite-majority nation.
Senior Iranian officials, however, have pointed a finger at Saudi Arabia, Iran's Sunni regional rival. Iran has arrested dozens of terrorists since the Tehran attacks.
