Iran Revolutionary Guards Threaten to Avenge Military Parade Attack

Iran Revolutionary Guards Threaten to  Avenge Military Parade Attack

DUBAI - Iran’s Revolutionary Guards vowed on Sunday to wreak “deadly and unforgettable” vengeance for a shooting attack on a military parade that killed 25 people, including 12 of their comrades, and Tehran accused Gulf Arab states of backing the gunmen.
Saturday’s assault, one of the worst ever against the elite force of the Islamic Republic, struck a blow at its security establishment at a time when the United States and its Gulf allies are working to isolate Tehran.
“Considering (the Guards’) full knowledge about the centers of deployment of the criminal terrorists’ leaders..., they will face a deadly and unforgettable vengeance in the near future,”
the Guards said in a statement carried by state media.
The assailants fired on a viewing stand in the southwestern city of Ahvaz where Iranian officials had gathered to watch an annual event marking the start of the Islamic Republic’s 1980-88 war with Iraq. Soldiers crawled about as gunfire crackled. Women and children fled for their lives.
There has been a blizzard of furious statements from top Iranian officials since the attack directed at the United States and Gulf kingdoms, blaming them for the bloodshed and threatening a tough response. (Reuters)
