Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who is in Mauritania, stressed on Monday that Iran’s missile capability protects its citizens in lawful self-defense.

"Iran’s missile capability protects its citizens in lawful self-defense and advances common global fight to eradicate ISIS and extremist terror," Zarif tweeted.

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) announced that it has conducted missile attack against Takfiri terrorists’ key sites in Syria’s eastern region of Deir ez-Zor in retaliation for deadly terrorist attacks in Tehran.

During the operation, the medium-range ground-to-ground missiles were launched from Iran’s western provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdistan.

The missile attack killed a large number of Takfiri terrorists and destroyed their facilities, systems and weapons.
