Iran says missile attack in Syria killed 40 'leaders' of Islamic State

Iran said the missile attack it launched in Syria on Monday had killed 40 “top leaders” of Islamic State, and that intelligence for the operation had been provided by its elite Quds Force.

Iran fired six missiles at targets in the Abu Kamal and Hajin regions in eastern Syria, in retaliation for an attack on a military parade in Iran on Sept. 22 that killed 25 people, nearly half of them members of its Revolutionary Guards.

The Quds Force is in charge of the Revolutionary Guards’ overseas operations.

“Based on the information we have received, around 40 top leaders of Daesh were killed in this attack,” General Amirali Hajizadeh, head of the Guards’ aerospace division, was quoted on Tuesday by Iran’s state media as saying.

“Daesh” is a derogatory Arabic acronym for Islamic State.
