Tasnim quoted a statement made by the IRGC public relations office Sunday as saying: "a number of mid-range ground-to-ground missiles were fired from the IRGC aerospace force's bases in Iran's western provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdistan".
The missiles flew over Iraq before striking what the Guard called an Islamic State command center and suicide auto bomb operation in Deir el-Zour, over 600 kilometers (370 miles) away.
The U.S. said it had downed the Syrian jet a day earlier after it dropped bombs near the U.S. -backed Syrian Democratic Forces conducting operations against the Islamic State group, adding that was something it would not tolerate.
Backing the missile operation, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted: "Iran's missile capability protects its citizens in lawful self-defense & advances common global fight to eradicate ISIS and extremist terror". He said there were no casualties from the strikes.
"The Swiss charge d'affaires was summoned to the foreign ministry to be a handed a strong protest from the Islamic Republic of Iran against the comments by the U.S. secretary of state.... which were contrary to worldwide law and the United Nations charter", ministry spokesman Bahram Ghassemi told Iranian media.
"The missiles that were fired are medium range - Iran has long-range missiles with much greater ranges", he said.
On June 7, seventeen people had been killed while 52 others were injured in a series of attacks with one targeting Iran's parliament and the other one at Imam Khomeini Mausoleum.
It has also sent thousands of Shiite recruits to fight in Syria and battle IS in neighbouring Iraq, according to officials. Those forces, which are aligned with the U.S.in the campaign against the Islamic State group, warned Syrian government troops to stop their attacks or face retaliation.
Russian Federation says it is waiting for the U.S.to explain its decision to shoot down a Syrian warplane.
Australia on Tuesday suspended its airstrikes against IS targets in Syria as a precaution, after Russian Federation announced it was suspending the hotline and warned the US -led coalition not to fly over Syrian army positions west of the Euphrates River.
IRGC spokesman Ramezan Sharif said some of the missiles were of the "Zolfaqar" type, a precision-guided missile with a range of almost 750 km unveiled past year.
A growing number of United States attacks targeting the Syrian government and militias aligned with the Syrian government are a sign that the USA involvement in the Syrian Civil War is widening, and nothing was so indicative of this than yesterday's U.S. downing of a Syrian Su-22 bomber.
Meanwhile, the US -backed opposition fighters said Assad's forces have been attacking them in the northern province of Raqqa and warned that if such attacks continue, the fighters will take action. This is especially confusing as activists in Syria didn't have information about the claimed Iranian strikes.
Sharif also warned that such attacks would be repeated if the extremists take action against Iran's security.
In his testimony, Tillerson also raised the possibility of imposing sanctions on the whole of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Iran's main military force and a major player in the country's economy. However, the test launches haven't affected Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. The Iranians unveiled the Zolfaghar in September, with a banner saying Iran could destroy the Israeli cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa [d].
