Attack on Iranian military parade in Ahvaz Iran

Attack on Iranian military parade in Ahvaz Iran

Tehran: Iran summoned diplomats from Denmark, the Netherlands and Britain over an attack on an army parade which killed at least 29 people near the Iraqi border, state-run media said on Sunday.

Who carried out the assault also remained in question.

"Iran will respond swiftly and decisively in defense of Iranian lives", he wrote.

Iran holds regional terror sponsors and their USA masters accountable for such attacks.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for an attack by gunmen on a military parade in southwestern Iran on Saturday, according to the group's Amaq news agency.

Tensions between traditional rivals Iran and Saudi Arabia have surged in recent years, with the two countries supporting opposite sides in wars in Syria and Yemen and rival political parties in Iraq and Lebanon.

"We do not have a choice but to carry out a resistance". Two of the attackers are dead, one wounded and another captured, according to its report.

Sharif said the shooting is not unprecedented and the group which is also supported by the United Kingdom has attacked convoys of those visiting the former frontlines in Saddam's war on Iran in recent years.

According to the FAA, he had received a commercial pilot's license in January, but he was not qualified to fly this type of plane. His father, Clement Sankat, is a former high ranking administrator at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad.

Footage on social media showed soldiers and bystanders scattering as shooting broke out at the parade in Ahvaz marking the 38th anniversary of Iraq's 1980 invasion of Iran. It was not immediately clear if either group had organized the violence.

Nine of those killed are reported to be members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corp, the semi-official ISNA news agency said. Three were killed at the scene while a fourth died in custody from his wounds. "After several people were injured, they realized it is a terrorist attack", it said. Several of Iran's largest oil fields are located in the province. It was also a frontline in the eight-year Iran-Iraq War.

ISIL likewise claimed responsibility for Saturday's carnage, although some raised doubts about its involvement.

In June 2017, coordinated assaults claimed by Islamic State on the country's parliament and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini killed 17 people.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday denounced the attack on an army parade in Iran, offering condolences to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and calling for deeper anti-terror cooperation.

Zarif said that children and journalists were casualties in the attack. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. "In a statement, the foreign office said that Pakistan is against terrorism and in this hour of grief, it stands with families of victims".
