The Iranian Revolutionary Guard launched at least six ballistic missiles into Syria early Monday morning; abruptly attacking rebels Tehran blames for an assault on a military parade just weeks ago.

According to state-run television, the rockets were carrying the slogans “Death to America, Death to Israel, Death to Al Saud.” Al Saud is a direct reference to the Saudi royal family; a regional foe for the Islamic Republic.

“This is the roaring of missiles belonging to the Revolutionary Guard of the Islamic Revolution,” said Iranian news. “In a few minutes, the world of arrogance — especially America, the (Israeli) Zionist regime and the Al Saud — will hear the sound of Iran’s repeated blows.”

“Terrorists used bullets in [the military parade attack],” added Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh. “We answered them with missiles.”

The attack comes just days after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani directly accused the United States of attempting to “topple” his regime; saying there are “Anti-Iranian” operatives working within the White House.
