Israeli sources: Iran missile strike a 'flop,' with most missing target

The Guard said it fired six missiles in total from Kermanshah and also from Iran's Kurdistan province into Syria's Deir el-Zour province, where IS has been trying to fortify its positions in the face of a US -led coalition onslaught.

After the Takfiri terrorists' attacks in the Iranian capital that left 18 killed and dozens more wounded, the IRGC announced that the spilling of innocent blood will not go unanswered. He said there were no casualties from the strikes. Developed in the 1990s, the liquid-fueled Nodong is based on the famous Scud short-range ballistic missile. While Iran has other ballistic missiles it says can reach longer distances, Sunday night's launch appears to mark the longest strike it has launched overseas.

Iranian officials threatened more strikes.

The former Italian Foreign Minister wrote an op-ed for Fox News in which he argued that it is time for the leaders of Europe to stand with the United States in opposing the Iranian Regime for its violations of the nuclear deal and links to terrorism.

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. "And I have one message to Iran: Do not threaten Israel".

Contrary to the prime minister, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Israel was not anxious by the Iranian strike.




The developments added to already-soaring regional tensions and reflect the intensifying rivalry among the major players in Syria's civil war that could spiral out of control just as the fight against the Islamic State group in its stronghold of Raqqa is gaining ground.

Iran's Revolutionary Guard is warning Islamic State militants that missile attacks launched into eastern Syria the previous day can be repeated if the extremists take action against Iran's security.

Iran's use of missiles, which were fired from the western provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdestan over the Iraqi airspace that is patrolled by US-led coalition forces and into Syria, is likely to create havoc in Washington. Ya'ari said they were a development of the Fateh missile type.

The missiles were launched by Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a paramilitary organization separate from army within the Iranian Armed Forces.

"Drones flying from near Damascus to Deir Ezzor transmitted (footage of) missiles hitting their targets", he said.
