Iran Judiciary urges identification of those behind terror attack on IRGC

Tehran, Feb 14, IRNA – Iran's Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani has ordered immediate identification of agents involved in late Wednesday's terrorist attack on a bus carrying the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) forces in southeastern Sistan-Balouchestan Province.

'I seriously ask the officials of the judiciary organization in Sistan-Balouchestan Province to cooperate with the security and disciplinary forces in the first opportune time to identify the agents behind the criminal incident and punish them,' read the Judiciary Chief's message issued following martyrdom of a number of the IRGC forces on Khash-Zahedan Road.

Once again, the hand of global arrogance, led by the criminal US, is unveiled through the traitor mercenaries, the Public Relations Department of the Judiciary quoted Ayatollah Larijani as saying in his message.

The message further said the hands of the mercenaries are stained with blood of the most pious Iranian youth, taking revenge on Iranian people for their epic presence in rallies held across Iran on Monday in commemoration of the 40th victory anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

It wished divine ascendance for the martyrs, who were defending the country, while condoling the bereaved families on the incident and wishing them patience.

Public Relations Department of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Headquarters in a statement late on Wednesday said 27 were killed and 13 more wounded in the terror attack.

The statement added the bus was carrying IRGC border guards who were on their way home after the end of a mission.

Based on the latest reports, the bodies of the martyrs will be transferred to Isfahan and funeral sessions for them will be held on Saturday. The bodies will then be transferred for burial in their hometown.
