Iran supreme leader: Attacks fuel hatred toward US, Saudis

Jun 11, 2017, 09:00

Pledges of solidarity competing against vows to "eliminate" the culprits.

Mohammad Javad Zarif in a tweet on Thursday called the comments on the attack in Tehran a day earlier "repugnant" and accused the USA of supporting terror. Other countries such as Russia, Britain and France just expressed condolences for the attack.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group says its responsible and is promising more Iranian attacks. The measure also would apply terrorism sanctions to the country's Revolutionary Guards and enforce an arms embargo. It can be assumed that one of their task was to kill Iranian politicians in parliament, and they failed to do this.

Together, we've gone far. The ministry released their photographs and first names, and said they were part of a network that entered Iran between July and August past year under the leadership of "high-ranking (ISIS) commander" Abu Aisha intending to carry out "terrorist operations in religious cities".

Etemad carried an opinion piece that referred to the attacks as a "golden opportunity" for a show of national unity, while warning against those attempting to disrupt it. "And Moscow would now have to anticipate with high likelihood aerial combat with USA forces should it elect to provide tactical air support to Iran and its proxies on the ground", Hof said. "We will remain, God willing". A woman was also arrested.

An official said previously that those who attacked the parliament complex had been dressed as women.

And many Iranians inside and outside the country reacted to the attacks by posting messages and images of solidarity on social media.

Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said: "These fireworks have no effect on Iran".

The "spilled blood of the innocent will not remain unavenged", the Revolutionary Guard statement said.

"The definite result of these (terrorist) acts will lead to an increase in the hatred towards the US governments and its regional elements like Saudi Arabia", he said.

On Thursday, Iran's Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavai, said the country was investigating whether Saudi Arabia had a role Wednesday's attacks.

"This terrorist attack happened only a week after the meeting between the U.S. president [Donald Trump] and the [Saudi] backward leaders who support terrorists".

On Wednesday, two deadly terror attacks took place in Tehran, and ISIS has since claimed responsibility. Saudi Arabia has said it was not involved.

The ministry also published pictures of their corpses.

Iran's foreign minister is rejecting USA statements about the attacks on Iran's parliament and the tomb of its revolutionary leader.

The comments sparked anger from Iranians on social media, who recalled the vigils in Tehran that followed the September 11 attacks. The group has also targeted Shiites in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. But Kayhan said it is important to look at the main "director of the bloody and inhumane scenario".

A double terrorist attack in Tehran on June 7, which killed 12 people, has become a painful blow to Iran.

The attack appears to be inflaming the enmity between the countries. Now Iranians are worrying about how many others are out there, planning similar assaults.
