A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on June 18- ebtekar

The Guard's website, as well as semi-official news agencies, reported the strikes Sunday on Deir el-Zour, Syria.

Previous actions centered on supporting Shiite militias in Iraq and sending troops in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a key Iranian ally.

It did not immediately offer other specifics, other than to say the missiles were launched from Iran.

"Medium-range missiles were fired from the (western) provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdestan, and a large number of terrorists were killed and weapons destroyed", the statement said. "The spilling of any pure blood will not go unanswered".

Many Labour and Lib Dem voters will be frustrated that they're less socially liberal than the Conservative Party. The misjudgment by the Conservative Party, moreover, is the second one in just two years.

The Guard warned Islamic State militants and their "regional and worldwide supporters" that similar retaliatory attacks would target them as well if another assault in Iran occurs. Iran identifies Islamic State militants as "Takfiri terrorists".

Tehran was rocked by two deadly attacks on June 7 targeting Iran's Parliament building and a shrine dedicated to the republic's revolutionary founder Ayatollah Khomeini. It was the first time that ISIS, a Sunni Muslim group fighting Iranian-backed militias in Syria, has claimed responsibility for an attack in Iran.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which accused Saudi Arabia of involvement in the attacks, had also vowed to avenge the attacks.
