Blaming the triangle of the US, the Zionist regime of Israel and Saudi Arabia for the horrific crime against the Iranian people, the general said the people of Khuzestan who have resisted eight years of war in the 1980s would not be shocked by “four mosquitos” that carried out the Saturday attack.
During the military parade in Ahvaz on Saturday morning, Takfiri militants opened fired on military officials and ordinary people in the event. At least 25 people have died and 60 others injured in the terrorist attack.
A senior spokesman for the Iranian Armed Forces said four terrorists were involved in the attack, noting that they had hidden their rifles in the parade venue beforehand.
