BREAKING: Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps launches missile strikes at 'spy headquarters' near US Consulate in Erbil, terror group in Aleppo: report

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Iran has announced that it hit a "spy headquarters" and a "gathering of anti-Iran terrorist groups" with ballistic missiles.

According to Reuters, the targets were around 25 miles northeast of the northern Iraqi city of Erbil, and a terror group in Aleppo. Three security sources said the area is near the US consulate and civilian residences. The sources said that air traffic at Erbil airport was halted.

The IRGD said that the attack resulted in the destruction of a Mossad headquarters used by anti-Iranian groups.

Officials in the US have denied reports that American facilities were damaged in the ballistic missile attack.



Political commentator and Navy veteran Jack Posobiec posited that "Israel assassinated a couple Hezbollah leaders in Lebanon last week, and the IRGC strikes on the Mossad facility and a Kurdish oil tycoon linked to Israel in Erbil seem to be Iran's retaliation."



Iran has also targeted the Islamic State in Syria, carrying out strikes in Aleppo around the same time as the strikes were reported in Erbil, according to the Times of Israel. The strikes in Syria came in response to a deadly ISIS attack near the grave of former IRGC commander Qassem Soleimani.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
