A terrorist attack shook the southwestern city of Ahvaz in the Islamic Republic of Iran on Saturday September 22 during a military parade in commemoration of the anniversary of the war with Saddam Hussein's regime in the 1980s.
A group of terrorists opened fire at the soldiers in the military parade and the crowd, which included women and children where at least 25 people were killed and 55 others wounded according to IRNA news agency.
According to Tasnim new agency, the terrorist group infiltrated the back position of the military parade and from that position fired shots at the ceremony.
The terrorists could not penetrate the ceremony but fired from a distance, where they initially targeted the memorial platform where high profile attendees were sitting and Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, fleeing after they opened fire.
