(MENAFN) People in the southwest Iranian city of Izeh staged a funeral march for the victims of a terrorist assault on Wednesday. On Friday morning, a number of high-ranking political and military officials attended the event.
Speaking at the funeral, Vice President for Economic Affairs Mohsen Rezaei clarified that “the three members of the terrorist group that carried out the Izeh attacks were arrested while trying to leave the country through the Maku crossing at the Turkish borders and are being brought to Ahwaz southwest of Iran.”
He promised that all of the perpetrators of this tragedy will be apprehended and punished for their crimes. Rezaei stated that violent activities similar to those saw in Shah Cheragh, Isfahan, and Izeh will not convert Iran into another Syria or Lebanon.
He, additionally, stated that “Iran’s enemies have been attentive to the recent cultural and economic reforms carried out by Tehran and want to create unrest and division among Iranians.”
But, according to Rezaei, these initiatives will fail, and the adversaries will be vanquished. He stated that Iran's opponents wish to destroy ties between the people, the religion, the Islamic Republic's leader, and the government.
“If the [Islamic] Revolution … is connected with the people, it can be more dangerous than dozens of atomic and hydrogen bombs, and for this reason, they have resorted to sowing insecurity and are backing the protesters.”
