TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) used 7 drones to target Takfiri militants in Al-Bukamal region, located east of the Euphrates River in Syria following a missile strike in early Monday in retaliation for terrorist attack on Iran's southwestern city of Ahvaz.

Shortly after the IRGC’s Aerospace Division launched several surface-to-surface ballistic missiles at Takfiri militants in Al-Bukamal region in Syria, 7 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) were sent to complete the operation “Muharram Strike” in retaliation for a recent terror attack in Ahvaz.

Iranian State TV released the footage of Saeghe combat drones, which bombed the positions and strongholds used for accommodating and supporting the terrorists.

IRGC reported in a statement that a number of leaders of terrorists and leading elements behind the recent crime in Ahvaz have been killed or injured in the operation, while their logistical infrastructures and ammunition depots were annihilated.

During a military parade in Ahvaz, which was staged concurrently with nationwide military parades on September 22 to mark the Sacred Defense Week, Takfiri militants wearing disguise opened fire at the people participating in the ceremony.

The attack was simultaneously claimed by the Saudi Arabia-linked al-Ahwaziya terrorist group, and the Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) Takfiri terror outfit, which is suspected of receiving Saudi patronage.
