IRGC foils bomb attack in Shiraz
Two days after the attack on the Shah Cheragh shrine in the Iranian city of Shiraz, the IRGC intelligence division foils a bomb attack in the city.
The Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) revealed, on Friday, that its intelligence unit had foiled a bomb attack in Shiraz.
This comes two days after fifteen Iranians were killed and 40 were wounded in a terrorist attack on the Shah Cheragh shrine in Shiraz.
Iranian state TV reported that “a bombing in Maali Abad Street in Shiraz was detected and foiled by IRGC intelligence”. Meanwhile, nationwide demonstrations were organized against the attack on the shrine in Shiraz following Friday prayers.
Iranian leader Sayyed Ali Khamenei has expressed condolences to the Iranian people following a deadly attack on a holy shrine in Shiraz, stressing that the perpetrators of the "heinous crime will face harsh punishment”.
In a letter, Khamenei said that the grief brought on by the loss of these pilgrims and the desecration of the shrine will not be compensated unless the perpetrators of these disastrous acts are tracked to wherever they came from, and decisive measures are taken against them.
