The IRGC said the operation "struck them with lethal and crushing blows", adding that intelligence reports indicate "a large number of Takfiri terrorists have been killed and their equipment, systems and weapons have been destroyed".

"The spilling of any pure blood will not go unanswered", the Revolutionary Guards said in the statement quoted by Tasnim.

LeoGrande called the White House's position here "obviously inconsistent" with the administration's stated "America First" policy. Of major note, there will be no change to the "wet foot, dry foot" policy and the US embassy in Cuba will also remain open.

Tehran was rocked by two deadly attacks on June 7 targeting Iran's Parliament building and a shrine dedicated to the republic's revolutionary founder Ayatollah Khomeini.

The attack also came as emboldened Sunni Arab states - backed by U.S. President Donald Trump - are hardening their stance against Iran.

It was the first such attack in Iran and shocked Iranians who believed the chaos engulfing the rest of the Middle East would not find them in the Shiite-majority nation.

Iran has described the attackers as being "long affiliated with the Wahhabi", an ultraconservative form of Sunni Islam practiced in Saudi Arabia.
