At least 50 Daesh terrorists, including several high-ranking commanders, were killed when one of Iran’s missiles hit their headquarters in Syria’s Dayr al-Zawr.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) fired six medium-range ground-to-ground ballistic missiles at Daesh bases in Syria’s Dayr al-Zawr on Sunday in retaliation for twin terrorist attacks in the Iranian capital Tehran, which killed 17 people and injured over 50 others.

According to reports, one of the missiles directly hit a Daesh command center in the city of al-Mayadin in Dayr al-Zawr.

Six Libyan Daesh commanders were killed in the attack; two of whom have been identified as Abu Asim al-Libyai and Abdel Kader al-frani, better known as Abu Harith.
