Iran’s response to Ahvaz attack devastating: Police Chief

IRNA – Chief of Iran’s police force described the recent operation in Syria as a ‘devastating response’ to the attack carried out in the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz that claimed the lives of two dozens of people.

‘The incident on September 22 as the result of which a number of our countrymen and women, particularly children and war-wounded, was a plot drawn by the US and the terrorists created by it,’ Hossein Ashtari said Wednesday addressing the 9th meeting of Iran’s police with ambassadors, chargés d’affaires and representatives of the international organizations.
