Terror attack on Iran, consequence of Tehran anti Zionist, US stance: PIJ

Tehran, Sept 23, IRNA – The Palestine Islamic Jihad Movement, denouncing the terrorist attack in southwestern Iran, said in a statement that such measures against the country are the result of Iran’s solid stance against the Zionist regime and its confrontation with US regional dominance.

The statement published on PIJ website on Saturday introduced 'Iran’s solid stance against the Zionist regime and US domination policy,' as the root cause of the Saturday terrorist attack in southwestern city of Ahvaz that so far has resulted in 25 deaths, and at least 70 more injuries, mostly civilians.

'They are pointed toward Iran’s security and stability,' the statement read referring to the terrorist measures against Iran.

'We strongly denounce the terrorist attack on Iran’s military parade and civilians which claimed lives and injuries,' it further said.

'PIJ expresses its deepest condolences to Iranian government and people,' it added.

The self-proclaimed Saudi-affiliated Al-Ahwaz terrorist group claimed the responsibility for the attack.
