In an official statement, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) accused both Saudi Arabia and the United States governments of playing a role in the Wednesday terrorist attacks in Tehran.
The attacks occurred only a week after the US-Arab meeting in Saudi Arabia that called to fight Iran. It is also worth mentioning that Saudi Defense Minister, Mohammed bin Salman, had promised to “move the battle to inside Iran” just days ago.
Deputy Commander of the IRGC Intelligence, General Mohammed Hussein Najat, said that “It’s not a coincidence that this two operation happened a week after the meeting, meaning that the USA and the Saudi regime ordered their mercenaries to carry out this attacks, and although many citizens and guardians of the revolution were injured or martyred, the terrorists and their masters didn’t achieve their goals.”
From its side, Saudi Arabia condemned the terrorist attack and its Foreign Minister, Adil al-Jubair, denied the accusation of involvement in the terror assaults. He stressed that Saudi Arabia is not aware whether the attackers were Saudi nationals. Qatar also condemned the terrorist attacks and confirmed that it stands against such acts.
The IRGC promised to retaliate against the terrorist attacks, where the official statement of the IRGC assured the Iranian people that “It will not be delayed for a moment in defending national security and preserving their lives.”
