Tehran warns UAE over 'offensive remarks' on Ahvaz attack

Iran,Iran revolutionary guards,Iran army parade attack Report: Several dead, dozens wounded after unknown gunmen attack military parade in Iran

Saturday's shooting attack, among the worst ever on the Guards, illustrated that Iran's elite force, which answers directly to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, can be vulnerable to guerrilla-style operations.

"This crime is a continuation of the plots of the regional states that are puppets of the United States, and their goal is to create insecurity in our dear country", Khamenei said in a statement.

Iran's Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, has blamed regional countries and their "US masters" for the attack.

From Tehran, Rouhani watched a military parade that included ballistic missiles capable of reaching Israel and US military bases in the Mideast.

Kurdish militants killed 10 Revolutionary Guards in an attack on an IRGC post on the Iraqi border in July.

Early Sunday, Iran summoned diplomats from Britain, Denmark and the Netherlands over allegedly harboring "members of the terrorist group" that launched the attack.

The British charge d'affaires "was told that it is not acceptable that the spokesman for the mercenary Al-Ahwazi group be allowed to claim responsibility for this terrorist act through a London-based TV network", said the ministry's spokesman, Bahram Ghasemi.

Islamic State militants also claimed responsibility.

"We do not have a choice but to carry out a resistance".

There have been conflicting claims as to who was behind the attack.

"Of the four terrorists, three were sent to hell at the scene, while the fourth who had been wounded and arrested went to hell moments ago due to his severe wounds", Mr Shekarchi told state television. State media in Saudi Arabia did not immediately acknowledge the attack, though a Saudi-linked, Farsi-language satellite channel based in the United Kingdom immediately carried an interview with an Ahvazi activist claiming Saturday's attack.

But while violence and bomb attacks are not uncommon on both Iran's western and eastern frontiers - bordering Iraq and Afghanistan respectively - audacious and organized assaults that directly target the Islamic Republic's security services in city centers are still rare.

Giuliani has made similar comments before on Iran, and the State Department has said he does not speak for the administration. At least 18 people were killed and more than 50 wounded in the attacks.

Tensions between mainly Shi'ite Iran and mostly Sunni Saudi Arabia have surged in recent years, with the two countries supporting opposite sides in wars in Syria and Yemen and rival political parties in Iraq and Lebanon.

"The United States stands with the Iranian people and encourages the regime in Tehran to focus on keeping them safe at home", Marquis said in an emailed statement.

The Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahwaz is classified as a terrorist group by the Iranian government.

Neither group provided evidence to show it was involved.

Protests against the government and its handling of the economy that erupted across many provinces late previous year also took place in some cities in Khuzestan, where some of the most violent incidents took place. State media in Saudi Arabia did not immediately acknowledge the attack. "Instead, we will work so that the battle is for them in Iran".

Women and children died in the assault, state news IRNA agency reported.

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. "The Iranian people and the armed forces will respond to this", he was quoted by IRNA as saying.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani vowed a "crushing response" after gunmen shot dead at least 29 people including women and children Saturday in an attack on an Iranian military parade.

It was a major battleground of the 1980s war with Iraq and the province saw unrest in 2005 and 2011, but has since been largely quiet.

President Hassan Rouhani has pushed back against the growing economic and political influence of the Guards in recent years but, after the Ahvaz attack, it will be hard for Rouhani to challenge them.
