Iran accuses two Gulf states linked to US and Mossad
Iranian Brig. Gen Abolfazi Shekarchi said after gunmen killed 29 and injured 60 in an attack on a military parade in Ahvaz Saturday: These terrorists are not affiliated with Daesh [the Islamic State], nor with other groups fighting [Iran’s] Islamic system. These individuals were trained and equipped by two extremist Persian Gulf states… they are linked to the United States and the Mossad.” Half of the 29 victims were members of the elite Revolutionary Guards. An anti-government Arab group, Ahvaz National Resistance, and Islamic State have both claimed the attack but offered no evidence.
