Iran’s president blames US, Israel for attack on Rev Guards

President Hassan Rouhani blamed the US and Israel and its “regional allies” for the suicide bombing in the province of Sistan-Baluchistan on Wednesday, which killed 27 Revolutionary Guards members on a bus. He spoke on national TV. A suicide bomber driving a vehicle  packed with explosives crashed into the bus. The ethnic Baluchi Sunni Muslim group, Jaish al Adl (Army of Justice), claimed responsibility for the attack. “The crime will remain as a ‘dirty stain’ in the black record of the main supporters of terrorism in the White House, Tel Aviv and their regional agents,” Rouhani said. DEBKAfile: Tehran has often blamed the CIA and the Mossad for past Baluchi attacks on Islamic regime targets.
