That was not US: America Snubs Iran’s Accusations of Involvement in Parade Terrorist Attack
To find the perpetrators of the terrorist attack at the military parade in the Iranian city of Ahvaz, Iranian President Hassan Ruhani “needs to look in the mirror,” says the US permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley.
Her words were in response to the statements of Tehran, who accused Washington of involvement in the terrorist attack.
“The United States condemns any terrorist attack anywhere, period. We’ve always stood by that. I think what Rouhani needs to do is he needs to look at his own home base. He can blame us all he wants; the thing he’s got to do is look in the mirror,” Hayley said on CNN on Sunday.
Unknown militants opened fire at people. As a result, about 30 people were killed and several dozens were injured.
Two groups, the Islamic State, and the Patriotic Arab Democratic Movement in Ahvaz, connected with Saudi Arabia, took responsibility for the incident.
However, the Iranian authorities rejected the involvement of the IG in the terrorist act and blamed the incident for “regional sponsors of terrorism and their American instructors.”
The Foreign Minister of the country Mohammad Javad Zarif stated that the terrorist act was carried out by militants who were hired, trained, armed and financed by “foreign regimes”.
