Revolutionary Guard members killed in Iran military parade attack

Gunmen attacked a military parade in the southwest Iranian city of Ahvaz on 22 September 2018

Iranian state television quoted a spokesman for Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps as saying that the attackers were affiliated with an Arab separatist group in the region.

Four militants carried out the attack and two of them were killed, according to ISNA.

The semi-official ISNA news agency published photographs of the attack's aftermath, with bloodied troops in dress uniforms helping each other walk away.

Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif said the assault was the handiwork of "regional terror sponsors", language that usually refers to Iran's enemies Saudi Arabia and Israel, and "their USA masters".

A second video capturing the aftermath of the attack shows a chaotic scene of people fleeing and paramedics trying to help the injured. He said children and journalists were casualties in the attack.

The state-run IRNA news agency put the number of wounded at 20, including a woman and a child.

The report Saturday described the assailants as "Takifiri gunmen", a term previously used to describe ISIS. Ahvaz is in the center of Khuzestan province, where there have been sporadic protests by the Arab minority in predominantly Shi'ite Iran.

Photos shared by a state news agency show a man in military fatigues with blood running down his back being helped towards a auto by a group of men.

Among those involved are members of the Revolutionary Guard, a paramilitary force answerable only to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The armed forces staged parades in several cities, including the capital, Tehran, to mark the anniversary of the Iran-Iraq war.

At least 18 people were killed and more than 50 wounded in the 2017 attack that saw gunmen carrying Kalashnikov assault rifles and explosives storm the parliament complex where a legislative session had been in progress, starting an hours-long siege.
