Tehran attacks aimed at undermining Iran’s power in int’l system: MP

June 10, The Iran Project – Twin terrorist attacks carried out by Daesh terrorists in Tehran aimed at weakening the Islamic Republic of Iran’s power in the international system, says an Iranian parliamentarian.

Speaking to a reporter on Saturday, Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh referred to Tehran terrorist attacks as a wishful attempt to maintain Daesh Takfiri terrorists.

Not reaching the ideals of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Daesh Takfiri terrorists have wishfully tried to push through their goals by committing terrorist acts, Falahatpisheh added.

Iran is the main goal of the terrorist group in the region, the Iranian lawmaker said, stressing by Tehran twin attacks, Daesh intended to convey the message that they hurt Iran’s political and security power.

He went on to say that but, the recent deadly terror attacks furthered the unity of the Muslim nation of Iran.

Last Wednesday, gunmen stormed Iran’s Parliament (Majlis) and the mausoleum of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini in two coordinated attacks where at least 17 people were killed and around 50 injured.

Both attacks were, however, foiled by the Iranian security forces, who arrived on the scene in no time and prevented the terrorists from gaining access to the sensitive parts of the two complexes.

The Takfiri Daesh terrorist group claimed responsibility for the near-simultaneous assaults.

Iran’s Intelligence Ministry later identified the five terrorists involved in the attacks, saying they had a history of past terrorist activities and were linked to Wahhabi and Takfiri groups.
