The September 22 terrorist attack on a military parade in Ahvaz that killed 29 people was backed by US-puppet Arabian regimes. Among the dead were women and children.
Four terrorists disguised in Revolutionary Guards uniform attacked a parade commemorating the anniversary of Saddam Husayn’s 1980 aggression against Islamic Iran. ‘Abd al-Khaliq ‘Abdullah, close to official Emirati circles praised the attack saying it was “not a terrorist act.” Iran condemned the remarks as “idiotic” and summoned UAE’s chargé d’affaires in Tehran to protest, warning him it will have consequences.
The terrorist outfit, al-Ahvaziya backed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE claimed responsibility. The group is trained, financed, and armed by the illegitimate Arabian regimes that are puppets of Israel and the US.
Al-Ahvaziya runs a Saudi-funded TV channel in Britain and one of its representatives admitted on TV to have carried out the attack. Iranian authorities summoned UK’s Charge d’Affaires to address the presence of self-declared terrorists on British soil. Ambassadors of the Netherlands and Denmark were also summoned because the group operates in these countries as well.
Saudi crown prince Muhammad bin Salman declared last year that he would work “so that the battle is for them in Iran, not in Saudi Arabia.” This is a declaration of war and it has manifested itself in the attack in Ahvaz and last June’s attack on Iran’s parliament.
The illegitimate Arabian regimes are playing with fire and courting trouble.
