A few minutes ago in Kurdish city of Kermashan(Kermanshah) IRGC fired a few missiles to an unknown destination. Two of the missiles crashed near the city a few second after they were fired.
At least 8 missiles were fired.

The missiles were fired from IRGC's base in Kermanshah called Shohada headquarters.

The moment when one of the missile exploded and a few minutes later crashed.
The IRGC has not published any statement.

And here is a video sent from Kermashan showing one of the missiles crashing near the city.

And here is the moment when the IRGc fired at least 8 missiles from Kurdish city of Kermashan(Kermanshah).
Two of the missiles were crashed a few seconds after they were fired.

According to a source inside the base the missiles fired were Four Chinese made Weishi-2/3 and Four Fateh.

It is likely that those two missiles which were crashed were IRGC made Fateh. However, there is no report on this yet. Iran has access to hundreds of Chinese Weishi-2/3.

One of the missiles was crashed in a village near Kermashan. A few houses in the village have been destroyed and four people have been wounded.

Here is another video from Kurdish city of Kermashan.
First IRGc fires four Chinese made Weishi-2/3 and then four Fateh(source). Two of the missiles were crashed a few seconds later.

Another two of the missiles fired by the IRGC have crashed. One near Jwanro(Javanrood) and another one near Salas Bawajani. So far four of the missiles fired from Shohada headquarters by the IRGC have crashed.

First photos of the first missile which was crashed a few seconds after it was fired.

Another photo from a different location where one of the missiles crashed.

Four missiles out of 8 crashed and not crashed ones(probably Chinese made Weishi-2/3) have been seen in the sky at borders between Iran and Iraq.

IRGC has published a video of missile attack into Syria's Abu-Kamal(Iraq-Syria borders)from Shohada HQ. It is not clear[in the video]if the missiles are Zolfaqar(modified version of Fateh-110 D)/Fateh-110 D(4th generation).
4 of the missiles crashed seconds after they were fired.

It is unclear why the IRGC claims they targeted ISIS in Abu-Kamal when months ago IRGC claimed Abu-Kamal has been taken from ISIS. IRGC claim is suspicious as always.

IRGC's Fars news agency claims missiles fired were Qiyam and Zofaqar(Modified version of Fateh-110 D) but the video published by the IRGC's Tasnim news agency does not show any Qiyam missiles. The video shows a missile very similar to Fateh-110 D and Zolfaqar.

No confirmation of any missiles targeting any location in Syria. In order to cover up IRGC's missile test failure, Iranian state media have published an animation showing that missiles did not crash but it was Qiyam(two stage). But videos received last night suggest otherwise.

Two of the crashed missiles destroyed two houses and now the IRGC has abandoned anyone to get close to the Sarawan village. Also in Jwanro and Sarpolzahaw security forces have blocked the roads preventing anyone trying to film the two other crashed missiles.

IRGC officially have announced that they also used drones following Missile attacks. What IRGC claim is that the drone fired two rockets as well.
It is unclear whether IRGC missiles ever reached Abu-Kamal.
IRGC also tries to hide the fact the missiles were fired from Shohada HQ.

According to the IRGC two drones were sent to Abu-Kamal each one fired two rockets at 'ISIS'.
IRGC also threatens US and Saudi Arabia and blame US and Saudi Arabia for supporting ISIS.

As reported last night, 8 missiles were fired, two of which crashed in Kermashan, here is Jwanro(Javanrood)only six missiles were seen, one of them crashed in Jwanro and a minute later another one crashed in Sarpolzahaw(SarpoleZahab).
Four of the missiles crashed inside Iran.

*Seven and not two.
In IRGC's official statement, IRGC announces that seven drones were used.
