Iranian state media said on Monday the country's Revolutionary Guard, known as the IRGC, fired missiles into eastern Syria in response to a recent attack on a military parade in the Iranian city of Ahwaz last week.

State television and the state-run IRNA news agency said the attacks "killed and wounded" what it described as "militants."

It later said the "IRGC aerospace branch" strikes targeted the "gatherings of the ringleaders" behind the Ahwaz attack with several surface-to-surface ballistic missiles and published images purporting to show the strikes.

The report specified the missile launches came in retalliation to the Ahwaz attack, which killed at least 24 people - including members of the Revolutionary Guard - and wounded more than 60.
