Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi stressed on Monday that Iran’s missile attack on terrorist sites in Syria’s eastern region of Deir ez-Zor was coordinated with Syrian government and Damascus knew about it.

"In line with its fundamental, certain and immutable policy toward fighting against Takfiri terrorist groups, Islamic Republic of Iran informed Syrian government about its missile attack on terrorists in Deir ez-Zor and the attack had previously been coordinated with Damascus," Ghasemi said in an interview with ISNA.

"Iran as one of the victims of terrorism has repeatedly announced that will continue its fighting against terrorism based on its human, progressive and fundamental stances so the Islamic Republic of Iran condemns terrorism in any form, anywhere and under any pretext and title," he added.

"Iran will use its all capabilities in defense, military, intelligence and security fields to defend its sovereignty and the security of citizens," the spokesman continued.

"Iran would not tolerate the least destabilizing action endangering its national security, rather it will give them firm, duly and smart responses," Bahram Ghasemi emphasized.

According to the reports, the missile attack hit the targets with pinpoint accuracy and the headquarters, ammunition and logistic depots of the terrorists were among the targets in the operation.

The missile attacks were carried out in response to the recent Daesh-claimed terror attacks in Tehran.
