Terrorist attacks caused by West's failure to destabilize Iran: Gov
In light of the failed attempts to destabilize Iran's civil order via anti-Iran propaganda, the enemy has now turned to ISIL to disrupt Iran's national security.
Iranian government spokesperson Ali Bahadori Jahromi said on Thursday that recent terror attacks that took place on November 16 in Khuzesatan and Isfahan were the outcomes of the West's failure to destabilize Iran's civil order via anti-Iran propaganda, MEHR news agency reported.
On November 16, seven people were killed and ten were wounded after terrorists opened fire at a crowded market in the town of Izeh, Khuzestan.
On the same day, local authorities reported that seven people were killed in a separate terrorist attack in Iran’s central city of Isfahan.
Another three people were killed and eight were injured during riots in the city Semirom, Isfahan province, on the same day, authorities reported.
Likewise, in the city of Malekshahr, Isfahan, two people were killed as a result of shooting at security officers.
In reaction to these successive terror operations, Ali Bahadori Jahromi said on Thursday, “Those who meddled with terror propaganda should be held accountable over the terror attacks in Izeh and Isfahan."
The assaults will not go unanswered, he added, saying, "Enemies and [those waging] media terrorism try to advance their agenda by spreading propaganda [against Iran] and by resorting to different types of media hype and through methods that are unclear and unfamiliar, but when they lose hope, they have no other way than terror."
The spokesman added that these individuals are not concerned about the lives of Iranian children and women, adding that “They chant slogans [in support of] freedom and women but they are [in reality] flag-bearers for acts of terrorism.”
Earlier today, the Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian warned that pro-zionist entities are planning on igniting a civil war in Iran.
"Western security services, the fake Israeli regime, and some Western politicians who have plotted for civil war, destruction, and disintegration of Iran, should know that Iran is not Libya or Sudan," said the top diplomat in a tweet.
On the same note, Major General Hossein Salami said on Thursday that the country is facing a big conspiracy by enemies that are angered by the Iranian nation and who are collaborating with some individuals that are being deceived.
