Iran launches ballistic missiles at terrorists in Eastern Syria
Deir ez-Zor is at this point in time, the most prominent hot-spot of ISIS in Syria, in many ways even more than Raqqa. Recent reports have surfaced of both the US and its Kurdish dominated SFD allies allowing ISIS leaders out of Raqqa. In most cases they are fleeing to Deir ez-Zor.
With the help of Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army has been making gains within Deir ez-Zor Governorate and are rapidly advancing on Deir ez-Zor city.
Iran’s strike is of course in full compliance with international law as Iran forms part of Syria’s anti-terrorist coalition whose largest member is Russia.
