Parliament to review terrorist attack in SW Iran

IRNA – The committee of national security and foreign Policy of the Majlis (Iranian Parliament) is going to discuss the terrorist attack in southwestern city of Ahvaz on Sunday.

Speaking to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Saturday, the committee’s spokesman Ali Najafi-Khoshrudi said that the committee is supposed to review the issue with the attendance of Iranian security officials.

The incident showed that those supported by some countries inside and outside the region, know nothing but the logic of assassination, violence and force.

Iran has repeatedly emphasized the fact that supporting terrorism is definitely not limited to a point and the Islamic Republic of Iran will respond to these accidents.

At least 24 people were killed and more than 53 others were injured during Saturday morning terror attack in Ahvaz, capital of the Khuzestan Province, in southwestern Iran.

“The terrorists disguised as the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and Basiji (volunteer) forces opened fire at the authorities and people from behind the stand during the parade,’ Governor of Khuzestan Gholam-Reza Shariati said earlier.

The self-proclaimed Saudi-affiliated Al-Ahwaz terrorist group claimed the responsibility for the attack.
