Iran vows to avenge deadly military parade attack

Iran vows to avenge deadly military parade attack

However, Iran faced a bloody assault a year ago from the Isis group and Arab separatists in the region have attacked oil pipelines there in the past. Neither claim provided evidence. All four attackers were killed.

A woman and a child were among more than 50 people wounded in the attack by a "group of assailants" on the parade in the city of Ahvaz, ISNA reported.

The Trump administration has said that changing Iran's system of government is not USA policy. "Gulf countries", Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi told the official news agency IRNA. Security forces killed three of them at the scene and another died later in the hospital from gunshot wounds, Shekarchi said.

In the last decade, mass-casualty militant attacks have been incredibly rare.

Iran summoned the envoys of the Netherlands, Denmark and Britain on Saturday night over the shooting, accusing them of harbouring Iranian opposition groups in their countries.

In another development, Iranian foreign ministry summoned chief diplomats from several European countries, protesting the separatist group's presence in those countries. It said gunmen wore military uniforms and targeted a riser where military and police commanders were sitting.

Khomeini led the 1979 Islamic Revolution that toppled the Western-backed shah to become Iran's first supreme leader until his death in 1989. The Guards are entrenched in those countries to defend Iranian interests. "Lie down! Lie down!" one man screamed as a woman fled with her baby.

A video on state television's website showed confused soldiers.

As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner. He could have been referring to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates or Bahrain - close USA military allies that view Iran as a regional menace over its support for militant groups across the Middle East.

A Revolutionary Guards spokesman claimed the attackers were "trained and organised by two Gulf countries" and had ties to the United States and Israel.

There was no immediate comment from Saudi Arabia on Rouhani's allegations.

Fars news agency quoted a local Iranian official as saying that Monday would be declared a national day of mourning.

Mostafa Koshcheshm, a Tehran-based political commentator and journalist, told Al Jazeera that the al-Ahvaziya movement had been "nurtured, supported, and trained by Saudi Arabia".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Vice president Eshaq Jahangiri during a farewell ceremony at the Mehrabad airport in Tehran, shortly before leaving Tehran for the UN General Assembly in NY.

"Iran's answer (to this attack) is forthcoming within the framework of law and our national interests", said Rouhani, adding that the United States would regret its "aggressiveness". "I think the Iranian people have had enough", said Nikki Haley.

The tweet drew sharp criticism from Muhsin Rezai, the secretary of the Expediency Discernment Council in Iran, who considered the comment a clear threat of new attacks on the territory of the Islamic Republic.

Denmark said there would be consequences if any such links were established, while the Netherlands said it had heard the Iranian version of events and offered its condolences.

Iran faces pressure to swiftly respond to the high-profile attack, which has hurt the security establishment's prestige.

The so-called Islamic State and the separatist Arab-Sunni group Al-Ahvazieh have both claimed responsibility for the attack.

In a keynote speech, Rouhani vowed to boost Iran's ballistic missile capabilities despite Western concerns that were cited by his USA counterpart Donald Trump in May when he abandoned a landmark nuclear deal with Tehran.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday the United States wants to create insecurity in Iran.

Reports of how the attack unfolded remained unclear immediately afterward.

Kurdish militants killed 10 Revolutionary Guards in an attack on an IRGC post on the Iraqi border in July.
