Iranian Revolutionary Guard has targeted bases of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is Syria’s Deir Az Zor in retaliation for the June 7 attacks in Tehran.

Tensions are escalating in Syria after the US-led coalition shot down a Syrian government jet.

The United States says the plane was dropping bombs near its allies.

The incident has infuriated Syria’s ally Russia.

It says it will now treat any US coalition jet west of the Euphrates river as a target.

Al Jazeera’s Stefanie Dekker reports from the Turkish city of Gaziantep, near Syria’s border.
