Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the Iranian missile program is aimed at uprooting terrorism and extremism.
“Iran’s missile capability protects its citizens in lawful self-defense,” the minister said on his Twitter account on Monday following the country’s missile attack against Takfiri terrorists’ positions in eastern Syria.
He added that the Islamic Republic’s missile power advances common global campaign to eradicate ISIL, extremism and terrorism.
Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) fired six medium-range ground-to-ground ballistic missiles into ISIL bases in Syria’s Deir Ezzor on Sunday in retaliation for twin terrorist attacks in the Iranian capital Tehran, which killed 17 people and injured over 50 others.
