Certain foreign spy agencies had hand in terror attack on Iran forces: Leader
Tehran (KNA) - Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has denounced a bloody terrorist attack that targeted members of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), saying the spy agencies of certain regional and trans-regional countries certainly had a hand in this crime.
In a message on Thursday, Ayatollah Khamenei offered condolences to the bereaved families of the IRGC forces who lost their lives in Wednesday’s terrorist bomb attack, which took place in Iran’s southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan.
Ayatollah Khamenei further called on the IRGC and relevant government institutions to swiftly and seriously follow up on the incident and deal with the perpetrators.
“It is certain that the perpetrators of this crime were linked to spy agencies of certain regional and trans-regional countries and the country’s relevant organizations must focus on that and seriously pursue it.”
On Wednesday, an explosives-laden car rammed into a bus carrying the IRGC personnel on a road between the cities of Zahedan and Khash, leaving 27 of them dead and 13 others wounded.
