Tabnak – Reacting to the violent terrorist attack in Ahvaz that resulted in the death of dozens of Iranian soldiers and civilians, high-ranking Iranian authorities vow to take revenge from the terrorists and to eradicate the threats against the country.
According to the Iranian media, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the Islamic Republic will give a "crushing" response to the slightest threat against the country.
The Iranian president made the remarks during separate phone calls with Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli and governor of the southwestern Iranian province of Khuzestan on Saturday, following a terrorist attack on a military parade in the provincial capital of Ahvaz.
"Those who are providing these terrorists with propaganda and intelligence support must be held accountable," Rouhani said.
The Iranian chief executive further gave necessary orders to the Intelligence Ministry and all security and military bodies to immediately identify the terrorists and their ringleaders and also to decisively deal with all those who committed the crime.
Shortly after the terrorist attack, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also said Iran will respond “swiftly and decisively” in defense of its people.
“Terrorists recruited, trained, armed, and paid by a foreign regime have attacked Ahvaz. Children and journos [are] among casualties,” Zarif tweeted on Saturday. Iran holds “regional terror sponsors” and their “US masters” responsible for the attack, he said.
In the same vein, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said the terrorist attack in Ahvaz was the continuation of plots hatched by US stooges in the region to create insecurity in the country, adding that Iran’s intelligence services must swiftly find the accomplices of the "criminals” behind the attack and put them on trial.
Meanwhile, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the terrorists behind the bloody attack in Ahvaz will definitely face "deadly and unforgettable" revenge in the near future.
In a statement on Sunday, the IRGC expressed its sympathy with the bereaved families of the victims of the terrorist attack, saying that the terrorist crime committed in Ahvaz by the ruthless stooges of the global arrogance and reactionary regimes in the region revealed that the sworn enemies of Iran spare no effort and conspiracy to transfer insecurity into the country after their failure to achieve their ominous goals.
The IRGC said it would spare no effort to hunt for the perpetrators of terrorist measures in the region and beyond and bring them to justice.
Also on the same topic, Iran's Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi said on Sunday that the country's security forces would give a "crushing response to the masterminds behind this inhumane measure" in Ahvaz.
He added that the mercenary terrorists carried out the blind attack in Ahvaz and killed innocent people in an effort to make up for repeated failure of their masters in Iraq, Syria and other countries.
It should be noted that the al-Ahwaziya terror group, whose recruits are believed to be scattered in several European countries, including in the Netherlands and Denmark, claimed responsibility for the attack.
The terror outfit, which is backed by Saudi Arabia, has a record of carrying out acts of sabotage in Iran’s Khuzestan Province, which encompasses Ahvaz and some other dominantly Arab cities.
