Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) carried out cross-border missile strikes in Syria and Iraq. The attacks were aimed against what the IRGC said were Islamic State-linked targets in Idlib, Syria, and Israeli Mossad-linked targets in Erbil, Iraq. The strikes were in retaliation for an Islamic State terrorist attack in Kerman in January and the suspected Israeli killing of IRGC general Seyed Razi Mousavi in Damascus in December. The operation involved the launch of four Kheibar Shekan ballistic missiles from Khuzestan province, four unspecified missiles from Kermanshah province, and seven missiles from West Azerbaijan province.
