BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 P.M.) – Twenty-two people were arrested in connection with a deadly terrorist attack on a military parade in Ahvaz.
Footage of the suspects standing with their faces turned to the wall and hands tied behind their backs was aired on Iranian TV on Tuesday.
Weapons and other equipment were reportedly seized during the operation, according to reports citing the country’s Intelligence Ministry.
On Saturday, at least 25 were killed and another 60 injured, after gunmen opened fire from behind the stands of a military parade in Ahvaz commemorating the 38th anniversary since the beginning of the Iran-Iraq war.
Eight members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard were among those killed, according to reports. Both the separatist Al-Ahvaziya armed group and the so-called Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attack.
