Attackers who have killed 12 revolutionary guards members are connected with Israel, and U.S, Reuters reported referring to IRNA.
“These terrorists... were trained and organised by two ... Gulf countries,” Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi said .
“They are not from Daesh (Islamic State) or other groups fighting (Iran’s) Islamic system ... but they are linked to America and (Israel’s intelligence agency) Mossad,” he added.
As Reuters reported later, the ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.
As reported earlier, at least 24 people were killed, over 53 injured as a result of the terrorist attack in Ahvaz on Saturday.
