Iran Revolutionary Guards threaten to avenge military parade attack

Gunmen attack Iranian military parade in Ahvas, killing dozens

However, ties deteriorated after Mr Trump took office and then withdrew from the nuclear deal.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif vowed that his country will respond "swiftly and decisively".

"Oh God! Go go go!" Women and children fled for their lives.

In the aftermath, paramedics tended to the wounded as soldiers, some bloodied, helped their comrades to ambulances.

IRNA reported civilians, including women and children, who were watching the parade in the southwestern city Ahvaz, are among the dead and injured. It said gunmen wore Guard uniforms and targeted a riser where military and police commanders were sitting.

The attackers disguised themselves as members of the Iranian armed forces and opened fire, according to IRNA, targeting officials in attendance. They just united Iran.

"Details about the attack remained unclear immediately afterward".

The ministry later summoned the UAE's envoy as well over what it called the "irresponsible and insulting statements" of an Emirati adviser, according to the semi-official ISNA news agency.

He also said in the clash, the security forces managed to kill two of the terrorists and arrest the other two.

"The United States stands with the Iranian people and encourages the regime in Tehran to focus on keeping them safe at home", said National Security Council spokesman Garrett Marquis.

Who carried out the assault also remained in question.

Speaking on Sunday, Rouhani said: "America wants to cause chaos and unrest in our country so that it can return to this country, but these are unreal fantasies and they will never achieve their goals".

Relatives of Iowa man charged in golfer's death 'devastated'
Arozamena was going to be on the field at halftime of Saturday's game to be honored as Iowa State's female athlete of the year. Even though she completed her eligibility as a golfer, she was remaining in Ames to finish her degree in civil engineering.

In its annual Country Reports on Terrorism released on September 19, the State Department claimed that Iran remains the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism and is responsible for intensifying multiple conflicts and undermining USA interests in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Bahrain, Afghanistan, and Lebanon. The separatists, however, previously only conducted pipeline bombings at night or hit-and-run attacks. The province has a large ethnic Arab community, many of them Sunni, the Muslim denomination to which IS adheres and which is a minority in Shiite Iran.

Tehran and Washington have had tense relations over a wide variety of issues, including Iran's nuclear program and American influence in the Middle East, for many years.

The UAE and Bahrain are closely allied with Saudi Arabia.

Iranian officials blamed two Gulf states and the United States for the attack, accusing them of backing the Arab separatist al-Ahvaziya armed group which claimed responsibility for the attack. The militants have made a string of false claims in the wake of major defeats in Iraq and Syria.

Earlier, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani used the occasion of the military parades to compare US President Donald Trump to the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, Press TV reported.

"America is acting like a bully toward the rest of the world.and thinks it can act based on brute force", Rouhani told reporters just before leaving Iran for the United Nations meeting in NY.

Who does Iran blame for the attack?

"Rather it will increase its defense power day by day".

Last year, in the first deadly assault claimed by Islamic State in Tehran, 18 people were killed at the parliament and mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic.

Mr Rouhani said the "bully" USA and the Gulf states it backed had enabled the attack. All four attackers were killed.

Iran's Revolutionary Guard is a paramilitary force answerable only to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian spokesperson emphasized that the policy pursued by different U.S. governments for many years has been based on creating and strengthening terrorist groups with the objective of advancing Washington's large-scale strategies.
