More terrorists detained — Iran`s Intelligence Ministry

While condemnations of the attacks poured in from around the world, US President Donald Trump refused to denounce the terror attacks and instead accused Iran of supporting terrorism.Larijani said Iranian lawmakers’ decision to go ahead with their session as the terrorist attack unfolded in a nearby building and their participation at a funeral for victims of the attacks showed the country’s determination to fight terrorists to the last.The Iranian security forces have killed the mastermind behind the two deadly terror attacks on the country’s Parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Khomeini.Announcing the retribution against the mastermind behind the attack, Alavi used another term for ISIS to say, “Our enemy is not Daesh, but rather Daesh is a tool in the hand of our foes”, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency. The IS media arm Aamaq released a video Thursday evening showing what it claimed was a message from the Tehran attackers. One of the men speaks in the sorani Kurdish dialect common among Kurds in northeastern Iraq and northwestern Iran. He speaks out at length against Shiites and promises further attacks.It also said the Islamic republic was hunting for the command centers of the terrorists beyond the borders. State TV broadcast the ceremony live. As Iran’s first Supreme Leader, Khomeini is a towering figure in the country and was its revolutionary leader in the 1979 ouster of the shah.More than 40 people were wounded in the attack.The bodies of the victims – in coffins draped in national flags and covered with flowers – were then taken for a religious funeral procession near Revolution Square in central Tehran, where Friday Prayers take place.From January to March 2017 “we dismantled 45 cells, while in the past two-and-a-half months alone we have dismantled more than 25 terrorist cells”, he said.“We possess documents and information showing the direct supports by the U.S. imperialism for this highly disgusting stream [IS] in the region which has destroyed the Islamic countries and created a wave of massacres and clashes, ” Fars news agency quoted Izadi as saying.
