Iran summons Dutch, Danish and British diplomats over terror attack in Ahvaz

Iran vows'crushing response after gunmen kill 29 at army parade

A number of Iranian officials, including Zarif and President Hassan Rouhani, are expected to travel to Trump's hometown of New York City next week for high-level meetings at the United Nations General Assembly.

Pakistan has strongly denounced the attack on Iranian military parade in which gunmen opened fire killing at least twenty-four people and around sixty others were injured.

"Iran's answer (to this attack) is forthcoming within the framework of law and our national interests", said Rouhani, adding that the United States would regret its "aggressiveness".

"On behalf of #PADMAZ organization we reject all accusations and we insist that PADMAZ organization is a civil political movement and has nothing to do with what (happened) today in #IranMilitaryParade attack", the group, using its acronym, said on unconfirmed Twitter and Facebook accounts.

A woman and a child were among at least 20 people wounded in the attack by a "group of assailants" on the parade in the city of Ahvaz, the official IRNA news agency reported.

An Iranian ethnic Arab opposition group called the Ahvaz National Resistance, which seeks a separate state in Khuzestan province, claimed responsibility for the attack without providing any evidence.

They will probably present a show of strength by launching missiles at groups operating in Iraq or Syria that may be linked to the militants who carried out the attack. His statement was widely interpreted as a sign that Riyadh would dramatically escalate tensions with Iran and intensify its support for various armed groups opposing the government in Tehran.

"The Persian Gulf states are providing monetary, military and political support for these groups", said Rouhani.

"All of those small mercenary countries that we see in this region are backed by America". We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. "We've always stood by that", Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, told CNN.

"The United States condemns any terrorist attack anywhere", she told CNN, but added: "He can blame us all he wants".

Iran holds regional terror sponsors and their United States masters accountable for such attacks.

The UAE has denied Iranian allegations alluding to its involvement in training troops that claimed the attack in southwestern Iran. Iran has been deeply involved in the fight against IS in Iraq and has aided Syrian President Bashar Assad in his country's long civil war.

There was no immediate Gulf Arab comment on his remarks. The U.A.E is a Saudi ally, and hosts a significant USA military presence.

Iran considers Israel an illegitimate occupier of Muslim land - and has accused it of attempting to undermine the government.

"The fact that senior USA officials like John Bolton, before he became national-security adviser, had openly advocated supporting Iran's ethnic and sectarian minorities as means of destabilizing Iran deepens Tehran's suspicions", he adds.

The two sides have had thorny relations for decades.

Isis wrongly suggested the Iranian president was speaking at the parade.

However, ties deteriorated after Mr Trump took office and then withdrew from the nuclear deal. United Nations inspectors say Iran is still complying with the deal, which saw it limit its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.

Iranian authorities have blamed "counter-revolutionary" groups based in northeastern Iraq for several attacks, particularly the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran and the Party of Free Life of Kurdistan.

In New York, Rudy Giuliani, Mr Trump's personal lawyer, said on Saturday that United States sanctions were inflicting economic pain on Iran that could lead to a "successful revolution".
