IRGC promotes more drone strikes against the Islamic State

Outstanding!

It doesn’t get much better than ragheads fighting the Iranian mullahs as the U.S. can sit by and watch the show. 

 

 

Sunni vs Shia fratricide also offers an interesting show.

No one has ever called these inbred killers overly intelligent, but apparently, they have some actual “Rocket scientists,” working for them.

THE THREAT MATRIX

Amir Toumaj

This week, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) promoted more Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) strikes, allegedly on Islamic State positions in eastern Syria near the Iraqi border.

The footage corresponded with the feed of an Iranian Shahed-129 UAV.

The video widely circulated in Iranian media had Arabic captioning, which likely indicated it was meant to reach a wider audience beyond Iran.

Last month, the also IRGC released footage of UAV strikes in the Iraq-Syria border area.

 

The IRGC said those strikes were operations to avenge the Islamic State’s beheading of an Iranian soldier in the border area earlier that month.

The IRGC mainly geared the messages toward a domestic audience, as well as its bases of support abroad. [See FDD’s Long War Journal report:

The IRGC touts drone strikes against the Islamic State].

The IRGC is currently leading an offensive in eastern Syria to capture territory near the Iraq and Syria border, which is a component of strategies to assist the Syrian government gain territory, as well as to consolidate a continuous land corridor from Iran to the Mediterranean.

Earlier, Iran used land routes to supply Damascus until Syrian insurgents shut down virtually the majority of crossings by mid-2012.

Afterwards, Iran fully switched to aerial supply, as covered by Will Fulton, Joseph Holliday and Sam Wyer in AEI‘s Iranian Strategy in Syria.

The IRGC’s publicizing of its UAV strikes reflects a more active propaganda campaign to shape the media narrative in the region.

About JCscuba

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
