President Hassan Rohani and other Iranian leaders blamed the Arab separatist group for the "terrorist" attack and accused the United States, Israel, and Gulf Arab monarchies of backing it. First an Arab Iranian separatist group, Ahvaz National Resistance, claimed responsibility. 'We listened to Iran's reading of the situation and we offered our condolences for the attack, ' the ministry is quoted as saying by broadcaster NOS.

Guards Brigadier General Hossein Salami, in a speech broadcast on state TV, said: "You have seen our revenge before". You will see that our response...

"This cowardly act was done by people who the Americans come to help when they are trapped in Syria and Iraq, and are paid by Saudi Arabia and the UAE", the ayatollah said.

The UN Security Council has condemned a terrorist attack in the Iranian southwestern city of Ahvaz, calling on the worldwide community to "cooperate" with Tehran in bringing the perpetrators to justice.

Islamic State's Amaq agency posted a video of three men in a vehicle who it said were on their way to carry out the attack.

"We are Muslims, they are kafirs (non-believers)", the man says.

Any connection to the attack on the military parade was unclear.

Khamenei, who was speaking to a group of Iranian athletes, said the attack "once again shows the Iranian nation faces many enemies on its proud path of progress and development".

Of the 25 killed, a dozen were members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard, the country's elite security and military organization.

Blaming the triangle of the USA, the Zionist regime of Israel and Saudi Arabia for the horrific crime against the Iranian people, the general said the people of Khuzestan who have resisted eight years of war in the 1980s would not be shocked by "four mosquitos" that carried out the Saturday attack.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the USA and its regional allies were responsible for the attack.

Four assailants were reported to have been involved in the Ahvaz assault and all were killed as Iranian troops returned fire during the attack and in the subsequent pursuit.

"The United States condemns any terrorist attack anywhere, period".

The UAE's foreign minister responded to accusations of involvment in the attack on Twitter, calling them "regrettable and unfounded".

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.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) was set up after the 1979 Islamic Revolution to protect the Shi'ite clerical ruling system and revolutionary values. It answers to Ayatollah Khamenei and has an estimated 125,000-strong military with army, navy and air units.

Tensions have been on the rise between Iran and the U.S. The Trump administration in May pulled out of the 2015 nuclear accord with Iran, and since then has re-imposed sanctions that were eased under the deal.

The ministry later summoned the United Arab Emirates' envoy as well over what it called the "irresponsible and insulting statements" of an Emirati adviser, according to the semi-official Isna news agency.
