Iran parl’t speaker attacks US, claims Washington supports terrorists
Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani attacked Washington saying the US government is supporting terrorists, Tasnim reported on Friday.

In a speech in Tehran during a funeral ceremony held for the martyrs killed in the twin terrorist attacks in the Iranian parliament and the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini, Larijani added that Iran is facing two ISIS groups, one in the region and one at the international arena, he noted, calling Washington the “international Daesh (ISIS)”.

 On Wednesday morning, five terrorists launched simultaneous attacks on Iran’s parliament building in downtown Tehran and on the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini, south of the city.

 The death toll from Wednesday's incidents in Tehran grew to 17, while more than 40 others have been wounded.
