IRGC Chief: Saudi Regime Directed IS to Conduct Attacks in Iran

The commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said new reliable intelligence has been obtained by the IRGC that reconfirms Saudi Arabia ordered the self-styled Islamic State to carry out last week’s terror attacks in Tehran that cut short scores of innocent lives.
“The US and the Zionist regime [of Israel] have backed the terrorists and we have precise information that Saudi Arabia not only supports them but has demanded that they conduct the operations inside Iran,” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari was quoted by Fars News Agency as saying on Monday.
The senior commander did not provide details.
Suicide bombers and gunmen struck Iran’s parliament and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, last Wednesday, killing 17 and wounding dozens more.
Iran has been a leading player in the campaign to oust IS militants from large swaths of Syria and Iraq, which the terrorist group overran in 2014.
Saudi rulers’ involvement in the deadly terrorist act was previously publically raised in an IRGC statement and in remarks by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
Iranian security forces have arrested 50 suspects and killed 5, including the mastermind of the attacks, in an ongoing countrywide operation.
