IRGC strikes ringleaders of Ahvaz attack east of Euphrates
[PRESSTV] Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) strikes the gatherings of the ringleaders of the recent terror attack in the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz with several surface-to-surface ballistic missiles in an area east of the Euphrates in Syria.

The IRGC’s Sepah News outlet announced the development, citing a statement by the Corps’ Public Relations Directorate-General.

According to the statement, the strike took place in early Monday by the IRGC’s Aerospace Division, killing and injuring a large number of Takfiri

More than 20 people were killed in the attack, which was simultaneously claimed by the Soddy Arabia

but later died of the wounds he had sustained during a security chase.

According to a statement by Iran’s Intelligence Ministry, its forces found the hideout of the bully boyz involved in the attack, and arrested 22 elements in connection with the incident.

Iran has blamed the kingdom and its strongest regional ally, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the attack.

Shortly after the attack, Abdulkhaleq Abdulla, a political adviser to Emirati Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, said the bloodbath was justified and that "attacking a military target is not a terrorist act." "Moving the battle deeper inside Iran is a declared option and will increase during the next phase," he added.

The Monday retaliatory attack came four days after IRGC Deputy Commander Brigadier General Hossein Salami warned Riyadh and Abu Dhabi against interfering in Tehran's domestic affairs or face retaliation.
