Iran Calls Missile Attack on ISIS Targets in Syria a Wider Warning

He rose to be one of the extremist group's leading ideologues. Izadi said it was partly intended for a Saudi audience. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Shi'ite Iran also is blaming Sunni Saudi Arabia for stirring up violence.

Washington said the jet had dropped bombs near US-backed forces and Damascus said the plane was downed while flying a mission against ISIS militants.

Khamenei said the US forces should not be allowed to enter Iraq "under the pretext of training (Iraqi forces) or other issues", quoted Tehran Times daily.

Russian Federation reacted angrily to the USA shootdown of the Syrian jet, which the Pentagon said was dropping bombs near the US -backed Syrian Democratic Forces, a mixed Kurdish-Arab militia fighting Islamic State.

This month, an American F-15E shot down an Iranian-made drone after it attacked American fighters in southeastern Syria. He spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. Coalition aircraft stopped the pro-regime forces from advancing on Ja'Din.

It said the latest contribution brings the total funding from the EU Trust Fund for UNICEF's work on the Syria crisis response to almost €200 million ($223 millions).

"The military and our security forces are constantly monitoring the activity of Iran in the region", Netanyahu said, according to a statement released by the Likud. The 48-hour truce that had started there at noon Saturday was supposed to be extended. That appeared to put an end to the fighting and the Americans sought to defuse the situation by calling their Russian counterparts from Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar. The conflict quickly descended into a civil war, which has since left at least 400,000 people dead.

Senate health-care bill faces serious resistance from GOP moderates
Many people will face a Hobson's choice, said Craig Garthwaite, a health economist at Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management. Rand Paul , R-Ky., said he is opposing the Senate bill because it "is not anywhere close to repeal" of the Affordable Care Act.

President Hassan Rouhani has defended the missile strikes by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps on the positions of the self-styled Islamic States militants in Syria as a "right" and "necessary" move.

The IRGC fired six medium-range missiles at Daesh targets in Dayr al-Zawr, which killed more than 170 Takfiri terrorists, including a number of commanders and senior elements, and inflicted heavy damage on their equipment and systems, it added. "Do people really think that all of the military pushback to Iran in Syria these last few weeks just happened randomly without authorization?"

It was not known what exactly was hit and Iran has provided no details.

"We are tracking their actions and also their words".

But Iranian state-run media said the missile strikes carried a greater message to Iran's perceived enemies - Israel, Saudi Arabia and the U.S.

The attack was the punishment for the "criminal terrorists" and the revenge for the victims of a June 7 attack in Tehran.

These words prompted Iran's defense minister to say that Trump's election had led to "unease", and that any war with Iran caused by his administration would "destroy" Israel and smaller Gulf states.
