Iranian soldiers jump over a hedge at a street as they run for cover during a deadly attack that occurred during a military parade in the city of Ahvaz, southwest Iran on Saturday.
In a statement issued by the Foreign Office, Islamabad expressed solidarity with Tehran and the victims families, adding that Pakistan is against every kind of terrorism.
According to the Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA), Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) spokesman Ramezan Sharif said "The attack by some elements of al-Ahvaziya group which is fed by Saudi Arabia, aimed to overshadow the magnificence of the parade by the Iranian armed forces".
Two of the militants were killed and two others arrested.

"Iran will neither abandon its defensive weapons nor will reduce its defence capabilities", Rouhani said.

Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi was quoted by IRNA as saying the terrorists were "not from Da'esh (ISIS) or other groups fighting (Iran's) Islamic system ... but are linked to America and the [Israeli global intelligence agency] Mossad". The Guards also play a major role in Iran's regional interests in countries such as Iraq, Syria and Yemen.
Iran was quick to blame Israel and the U.S. for the attack, dismissing Islamic State's (IS) claim that they were behind it. Earlier in the month, it closed its side of the Shalamcheh border crossing, which adjoins Basra Province, after protesters burned the Iranian Consulate in Basra city.
