Spokesman Commemorates Victims of Iran Parliament Terror Attack
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman commemorated the martyrdom anniversary of those killed in a US-backed terrorist attack on the Iranian Parliament three years ago, saying that the botched assault aimed to retaliate the successes of the resistance front in the region.
“3yrs ago today, US-backed ISIS (Daesh) carried out the botched terror attack on Flag of Iran Parliament to retaliate the successes of 'Resistance Front' under MG Soleimani’s leadership & sacrifice. 2yrs later, the MG as counterterrorism champion was cowardly assassinated by terrorist America. RIP!,” Seyed Abbas Mousavi tweeted on Sunday.
On June 7, 2017, terrorists launched simultaneous attacks on Iran’s parliament building and on the mausoleum of late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini in Tehran.
Daesh claimed responsibility for the attacks, which killed 17 people and wounded more than 40.
All five gunmen directly involved in the attacks were killed by security forces.
