Trial of IS Terrorists Involved in Majlis Attack Starts

Trial opened in a Tehran court on Sunday for the terrorists involved in the June 2017 attack on the Iranian Parliament. Two terrorist attacks were simultaneously carried out by five terrorists from the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group against the Iranian Parliament building and the Mausoleum of the late Imam Khomeini, both in Tehran on June 7, 2017, leaving 17 civilians dead and 43 wounded. Eight IS terrorists are now being tried at Tehran Revolutionary Court in the presence of their lawyers and families of those killed in the attack, Fars News Agency reported. Based on the indictment, one of the suspects joined IS in a foreign state almost three years ago and returned to Iran last year with weapons and ammunition, while he was armed with a suicide belt. He was tasked with coordinating terrorist attacks inside the country. All the suspects present in the first court session were arrested in June 2017, and they are accused of purchasing, carrying and keeping light, semi-heavy and heavy arms and conducting terrorist attack. A few days after the June 7 terrorist attacks, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps launched 6 missile strikes at IS centers in Syria’s Deir Al-Zor in retaliation.
