Russian Federation on Monday threatened aircraft from the USA -led coalition in Syrian-controlled airspace and suspended a hotline meant to avoid collisions in retaliation for the us military shooting down a Syrian warplane.
There was no official reaction from Syria, which has been backed by Iran as it seeks to force Islamic State forces off of its territory.
Iran described today the missile attack against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group in the Syrian province of Deir Ez-Zour as crushing and successful, destroying command centers and weapons depots.
Furthermore, as far as the use of long range missiles in the Syrian Civil War is concerned, both the United States and Russian Federation have conducted cruise missile strikes against targets in Syria. Iran is a solid backer of the Syrian regime and has given President Bashar Assad extensive military and political support.
A "large number" of Islamic State terrorists were reportedly killed, their equipment and weapons destroyed, in the retaliatory attack that targeted the "headquarters and gathering centers of Takfiri terrorists supporting and building auto bombs".

Jury questions posed during Bill Cosby's sex assault trial
At a hearing, the jury said it could not reach a unanimous verdict on any of the counts being faced by the TV entertainer. Instead she put across a venomous attack on Steele's credibility, as well as that of Judge Steven O'Neill and the media.
Both the Iranian strikes and the US's downing of the Syrian plane, followed by its tensions with Russian Federation, come as various players in the region jostle and scramble for position to take over territory in the post-ISIS era.
The Washington Post also reported on Sunday that the Pentagon confirmed a US military aircraft shot down a Syrian government fighter jet shortly after USA -backed fighters in northern Syria were bombed by Assad's fighters. It was the first time the US directly targeted the Syrian government since the civil war began in the country. Bahram Qasemi, the Foreign Ministry spokesman said the Syrian government was notified of the attack before it was carried out. At the time, the Kremlin said Putin called the USA strike an "aggression against a sovereign state in violation of worldwide law".
Speaking in Washington, the top USA military officer said the two sides discussed the matter as recently as Monday morning but that further talks are needed. "The U.S. Senate voted nearly unanimously Friday to impose new sanctions on Iran (and Russia) for its missile program among other activities". "That's why there's no threat of direct confrontation between Russian Federation and American aircraft".
Iran's Revolutionary Guard announced on Sunday that it launched several missiles into Syria, targeting ISIS fighters in retaliation for the attacks in Tehran on June 7th. This is the first time since its 1980s war with Iraq that Iran has launched a major missile strike outside the country.
The tweet appeared to refer to comments made by Saudi Arabia's deputy crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman al-Saud, in May, who said Riyadh would bring "the battle" for regional influence inside Iran.
But the missiles sent a message to more than just the extremists in Iraq and Syria, Sharif told state television in a telephone interview.
