Iran: Strikes 'declared how accurate our missiles are' - Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps

Iran, Islamic Republic of, Tehran

[Answering a question on whether Iran plans to release documents revealing the US support for IS] Yes. There are plans to release these documents. However, they are not documents in a written shape or something like contracts that would be released in the form of written texts, but they cover field aspects, meaning that they indicate in which locations they came to help Daesh. The arms, the supports, the logistical and medical assistance are all clues to such [American] support [for IS]. Besides, what matters more is that the creation of Daesh has been at the hands of them themselves. They cannot hide this fact. But even today when they claim that ‘we made the mistake of creating it and we want to destroy it’,'they are still lying, and there are a lot of documents about this."

Media adviser to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Commander-in-Chief Hamidreza Moqaddamfar, said that the main goal of Iran's recent missile strikes against militant targets in Syria was to show that Tehran's missile and arms capabilities “could accurately reach [Iran’s] operational goals,” in an exclusive interview in the Iranian capital, Wednesday.

“In the past, when these missiles were test-fired in Iran, the US and certain western countries used to usually announce that Iran was lying,” Moqaddamfar said.

In response to a question of whether Iran intends to take further action in response to the latest attacks in Tehran, Moqaddamfar stated that “conditions determine whether a similar attack will happen again or not."

With regards to Iran’s recent claims that it possess proof that the US is assisting the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL), Moqaddamfar said that “there are plans to release these documents."

On Sunday, The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) announced that they had launched ground-to-ground ballistic missiles from Iran targeting militants in Syria's Deir Ez-Zor region.

Iran launched the strike in retaliation for recent twin attacks on the Iranian parliament and Ayatollah Khomeini's mausoleum that killed 18 people.
