Crushing response to be given to terrorists' supporters

Tehran, Sept 23, IRNA - Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi said on Sunday that the intelligence forces are to give a crushing response to those masterminding the recent terrorist attack on a military parade in the city of Ahvaz claiming lives of scores of innocent people.

The country's security forces reserve the rights to give a proper response in due course, underlined the minister.

These puppets killed scores of people to compensate consecutive defeats of their masters in Iraq, Syria and other countries, he said.

Aliens shared hands in the attacks to insecure the Islamic Republic of Iran but to no avail, he said.

Security forces will trace them to bring them to the court of justice while reserving the rights to give them a crushing response, he said.
