Ali Khamenei
Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei said that there are parties that are in contact with some countries responsible for the terrorist attack that took place in Ahvaz on Saturday.

An attack was carried out on the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps' parade in Iran’s southwestern city of Ahvaz, which reportedly caused the death of 29 people and the injury of over 60 others.

The Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz (ASMLA) and ISIS have claimed responsibility for the attack.

Khamenei asserted the attack was carried out by parties that are protected by the U.S. and funded by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Khamenei said that the attack proved that Iran has a lot of enemies, adding that parties behind the Ahvaz attack will be severely punished.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has also blamed the U.S, its arch-foe, of supporting the attack.
