Leicester Post (Independent news), June 21, 2017 - "There's no authorization for military force that Congress has passed that gives the president the ability to take military action against the Syrian regime", said the senator, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Ya'ari said that three of the missiles crashed in Iraq, one landed a few hundred meters away from its intended target, one landed somewhere in the Deir Ezzor region, and the crash site of one missile is still unknown.
Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot said Tuesday the "operational achievement was much smaller" than what has been reported.
The NCRI's report comes just days after Iran launched missiles at targets in Syria, a move that Tehran said was meant to attack ISIS but which the NCRI said was a propaganda ploy in response to growing opposition from Iranian citizens to the missile and nuclear projects - not to combat the Islamic State.
It was not known what was hit and Iran provided no details.
