The IRGC touts drone strikes against the Islamic State

The IRGC wasn’t finished, however. Later in August, IRGC-affiliated websites released footage of a drone strike by the Seyyed al Shuhada Brigades against the Islamic State in Syria’s Badia desert.

The images showed the Iraqi militiamen undertaking reconnaissance and launching a drone strike against an Islamic State technical. The footage also showed more strikes, though it was not immediately clear if they were from the same operation. That attack was just the beginning of the IRGC’s “revenge” operations against the Sunni jihadists, according to IRGC-affiliated media.
