Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said the terrorist attack in the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz was the continuation of plots hatched by US stooges in the region to create insecurity in the country.
Few hours after the attack on a military parade in Ahvaz killed at least 29 people ON Saturday, Imam Khamenei ordered Iran’s intelligence services to swiftly find the accomplices of the “criminals” behind the attack and put them on trial.
In a message on Saturday, the Leader expressed his condolences over the terrorist attack which also injured more than 60 others.
“The tragic and sorrowful incident in Ahvaz and the killing of people by mercenary terrorists once again exposed the cruelty of the enemies of the Iranian nation,” Imam Khamenei added, as quoted by Iranian media.
“These savage mercenaries who open fire on innocent civilians, including women and children, are linked with the same liars who claim to advocate human rights.”
“Their crime is a continuation of the conspiracies by the US-backed regimes in the region which have aimed at creating insecurity in our dear country,” the Leader said, stressing that the Iranian nation “will persist on the noble and prideful path they have taken and will—like before—overcome all animosities.”
