Iran's Revolutionary Guard vows to avenge Ahvaz attack

The "formal incitement against the UAE from within Iran is unfortunate, and has escalated after the Ahvaz attack", said Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash in a tweet.

At least 29 people were killed and 70 others wounded in an attack on a military parade in Iran's southwestern city of Ahvaz on Saturday, Iran's semi-official Fars News Agency reported, citing the deputy governor-general of Khouzestan province, Hossein Hosseinzadeh.

Those behind the terrorist attack at the Ahvaz military parade will face "unforgettable vengeance", Iran's Revolutionary Guards said, as Tehran persists in accusing Washington and its regional allies of orchestrating the assault.

He did not name the regional states he believed were to blame.

The attack came four months after President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal, against the advice of the worldwide community and the wishes of 63 percent of the American public.

Tehran has accused the UAE of sponsoring the attack.

"I think Ahvaz -- inevitably, and not at all diminishing the scale of the killing of innocents -- was going to be situated by regime officials within the narrative of a U.S. -Saudi campaign to undermine the Islamic republic", Lucas says.

Rouhani also said that Iran will respond to terrorist attack in Ahvaz, the capital of Khuzestan province, which left 25 people, including women and children, dead.

"What we are hearing from the revolutionary guards is that they will carry out a swift and violent response, and that is something unique", he said.

"The United States condemns any terrorist attack anywhere, period".

"Their crime is a continuation of the conspiracies by the USA -backed regimes in the region which have aimed at creating insecurity in our dear country", Khamenei said in a statement. Officials in Tehran point to comments by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, now next in line to the throne in Iran's Mideast archrival.

A second video capturing the aftermath of the attack showed a chaotic scene of people fleeing and paramedics trying to help the injured.

The attack was one of the worst ever against the Guards, who are the most powerful and notorious military force in the country. "Americans are provoking them and providing the right conditions for them to commit these crimes", Rouhani added.

Bahram Ghasemi, a Foreign Ministry spokesman, said Iran "re-emphasized" to the diplomats a previous warning about the presence in their countries of a group that Iran classifies as terrorist and wants its members arrested and prosecuted. Tehran claims the group is backed by its arch-rival Saudi Arabia.

The attack took place Saturday at an annual event in Ahvaz, killing at least 29 people, including several civilians, and injuring almost 70 others.

The U.S. State Department has said Giuliani does not speak for the administration on Iran. "It is absolutely clear for us who did that, what group they are and with whom they are affiliated", Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned before leaving for NY for the United Nations General Assembly.

The memo details how the United States should coordinate with Israel and Saudi Arabia to build support - domestically and internationally - for a withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and a much more aggressive policy on Iran.

The IRNA report said those wounded in the attack Saturday included a woman and a child.

Up to a million people were killed, majority Iranian, but the only direct USA support was to give Saddam's forces intelligence and targeting information for their attacks.

"There is still time for a determined worldwide response that stops Iran from spreading its malignant influence to every corner of the region", he writes.
