“US and Israel are behind the suicide bombing in Chahbahar”; Ansar Iran claims responsibility

Monday, 22 October 2012

Seyyed Baqer Husseyni, Majlis member, said that the October 19th crime was committed by the same people who removed the Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO – opposition group) from the list of terrorists and who train mercenaries and use them against the people. They are guided by America and Israel.” A suicide bomber escaped  security forces and detonated his explosives near Imam Hussein mosque in Chabahar port in southeastern Iran, killing two Basij men and injuring five others. A Sunni group claimed responsibility for the attack, “We, the Mujahideen of Harakat Ansar Iran, proudly bring you the news of our first successful operation  from our new series of operations code named Ra’ad (operation storm). In this operation, approximately 20 officers of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (Pasadaran) were killed by an explosive-rigged van in the city of Chabhar, Iran, while one brother Mujahid, Hamza Saravani, was martyred.”
