Iranian attackers were in Mosul and Raqa with IS: ministry

09 Juin 2017

Wednesday's attacks on Tehran's parliament complex and the shrine of revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, which also wounded more than 50 people, were the first claimed by IS in Iran.

Tasmin news agency said there were unconfirmed reports that the attackers had taken four hostages inside the parliament building.

"Repugnant WH (White House) statement and Senate sanctions as Iranians counter terror backed by United States clients". The rift was over comments allegedly made by Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim Al Hamad Al Thani hailing Iran as an "Islamic power" and criticizing Trump's policy toward Tehran.

The terrorist group of Daesh (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for the fatal attacks in Tehran.

So when the White House woke on Wednesday to images of a possible Islamic State attack on Tehran, it prompted a sharp quandary: How does President Trump condemn the violence without seeming to embrace the victims?

Despite the attacks, Democrats and Republicans in the Senate pushed ahead on a new set of sanctions against Iran.

Trump - who used a visit to Riyadh last month month to rally support for Iran's isolation - has endorsed the Saudi pressure while other USA officials appealed for calm.

So far, nothing is known about the attackers, and Iranian authorities are being characteristically tight-lipped.

Trump expressed sympathy for the victims but levelled a barbed warning at Iran, after the USA leader took a hard line on Tehran during a recent Middle East visit.

According to Inside Edition , the family at first thought that their house was burglarized by human beings. Katie Hawley came home on May 31 and discovered her kitchen and living room had been damaged.

The comments sparked anger from Iranians on social media, who recalled the vigils in Tehran that followed the September 11 attacks. The strong bipartisan vote was 92-7.

Supporters of Ebrahim Raisi, a hardline cleric who came second in last month's presidential election, said it was a effect of Mr Rouhani weakening the country in his attempts to pursue better relations with the USA and its Saudi allies.

"Iranians lit candles for you on 9/11".

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., also pushed for a delay, but Republicans and Democrats pressed ahead. President Hassan Rouhani said ISIS's actions would only unite Iran and called for greater worldwide support in tackling militant groups. Rouhani is a political moderate who scored a resounding victory over a hardline opponent.

One of the terrorist was gunned down by the security forces and the other one exploded himself at the mausoleum.

"It is astounding what Iran continues to do around the world", said Corker, urging his colleagues to confront the threat Tehran poses.

Shias make up roughly 90 percent of Iran's population, but the country also has a sizeable Sunni minority, particularly around its restive borders with Iraq and Pakistan.

Israel and congressional Republicans have long assailed the agreement as a windfall to Iran. But Iranian Sunnis should expect a harsh crackdown in the weeks and months to come, whether they were involved or not. "Proxies attack what their masters despise most: the seat of democracy", Zarif added with reference to elections that are held in Iran as opposed to the dynasty rule in Riyadh. Lawmakers were in session at the time of the attack, and have been ordered to remain in place. Just express sympathy and support for victims of terrorism, no matter who they happen to be, and save other political messages for another occasion.
