Iran's Supreme Leader: Attacks Will Increase Hatred of US, Saudis

The ministry announced on Friday it had caught more than 41 suspects in connection to the Tehran attacks across the country.

Plenty of documents and equipment for terrorist operations were also seized, the statement added.

One day after the raids, the Leader highlighted: "The Iranian nation is moving forward and advancing; even these firecrackers that were set off today will not impact our nation's will; everyone must know this".

In a condolence message posted Friday on his official website, Ayatollah Khamenei described the attack "a clear sign of the vicious grudge and enmity of arrogant mercenaries toward the dignified people of Iran, and toward everything that is related to the revolution, to the Islamic Republic, and to its late honorable leader [Imam Khomeini]".

People in the crowds chanted "Death to Saudi Arabia" alongside the more customary slogans against the United States and Israel.

The Islamic State militant group (ISIS) threatened to attack Saudi Arabia after it claimed responsibility for terrorist attacks in Tehran that left 17 people dead, according to a new video released on Friday.

In another tweet, Zarif also addressed the contradictory comments by US President Donald Trump over the twin attacks in Tehran, saying, "Repugnant WH statement & Senate sanctions as Iranians counter terror backed by US clients".

The Islamic Republic of Iran has suffered a disgusting terrorist attack on its soil, which killed 17 and injured many more.

"Daesh is an global danger", he said. Some carried pictures of Khamenei that said, "We are ready to sacrifice our blood for you".

Parliamentary staff who survived the attack also attended the procession under tight security. In 2014, the Democratic Party of Kurdistan Iran, an opposition party, published a report about increasing Islamic State activities in Iranian Kurdistan that singled out Sadeghi as a prominent recruiter who, at times, held sessions in a local mosque.

During the funeral, parliament Speaker Ali Larijani called the US the "international" version of the Islamic State and said Washington had exchanged democracy for money, a reference to a recent arms deal between the USA and Saudi Arabia.
