Iranian accusations on terror attack Here’s what UAE says

Iranian state media reported that four gunmen dressed in military uniforms opened fire during a September 22 parade in Ahvaz marking the start of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war.

Among those buried was Mohammad Taha Eghdami, a four-year-old boy, who was the youngest victim of the attack. The assault killed members of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard, including conscripts, wounded over 60 others and further ratcheted up tensions across the Persian Gulf ahead of this week's United Nations General Assembly.

Rouhani's remarks could refer to Saudi Arabia, the UAE or Bahrain - close USA military allies that view Iran as a regional menace, in part because of its support for militant groups across the Middle East. Saudi-linked media immediately carried claims of responsibility by the separatists after the attack and have widely covered their previous attacks on oil pipelines.

"Iran's answer (to this attack) is forthcoming within the framework of law and our national interests", said Mr Rouhani, adding that the USA would regret its "aggressiveness".

Soon after the attack, the U.S. State Department issued a statement of sympathy to Iran, calling out what spokesperson Heather Nauert called "the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism". You will see that our response will be crushing and devastating and you will regret what you have done, ' deputy IRGC head Hossein Salami said in a speech before the funeral of the victims in Ahvaz, broadcast live on the state television.

The Guard Corps was set up after the 1979 Islamic revolution to protect the Shi'ite clerical ruling system and revolutionary values.

"We stand with the Iranian people against the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism and express our sympathy to them at this awful time".

Amaq, the ISIS media agency, has posted a video on social media claiming to show the perpetrators of Saturday's attack on an Iranian military parade which left at least 29 people dead.

The United Arab Emirates, a close ally of Saudi Arabia and Washington, rejected Iranian allegations alluding to its involvement in the violence.

He wrote on Twitter: "Terrorists recruited, trained, armed & paid by a foreign regime have attacked Ahvaz".

The region's Arab separatists, once only known for nighttime attacks on unguarded oil pipelines, accuse Iran's Persian-dominated Government of discriminating against its ethnic Arab minority.

This year's parades had special significance as tensions with the United States have peaked since the U.S. withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal in May and began to re-impose unilateral economic sanctions on Tehran.

Rohani and U.S. President Donald Trump are both attending the UN General Assembly in NY this week.

It is, however, highly unlikely the Guards will strike any of its foes directly and risk setting off a regional conflict.

It answers to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Accusations against Gulf countries will nearly certainly antagonise Iran's regional foe Saudi Arabia.

Iranian Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi announced on Monday that the most of those persons behind the Saturday terrorist attack in Ahvaz have been arrested. The oil super-powers are waging a war for influence across the Middle East, backing opposite sides in Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Lebanon.
