Pakistan on Saturday strongly condemned the terrorist attack on a military parade in Ahvaz city, Iran, which resulted in the loss of dozens of innocent lives.

Military forces and citizens who had gathered to watch the parade were among the killed, the report said.

Following a deadly attack on a military parade in southern Iran, the country's foreign minister said that regional sponsors of terrorism and their "US masters" are to be held accountable for such assaults.

However, the Iranians "will continue their path of honour and overcome all the hostilities", Khamenei added. Iran holds regional terror sponsors and their U.S. masters accountable for such attacks.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani vowed a "crushing" response, saying on his official website that "those who give intelligence and propaganda support to these terrorists must answer for it".

"These terrorists... were trained and organised by two ..."

"The terrorists disguised as Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and Basiji (volunteer) forces opened fire to the authority and people from behind the stand during the parade", the governor of Khuzestan, Gholam-Reza Shariati, said, according to IRNA.

Iranian security forces shot and killed three of the terrorists and arrested a fourth, according to the news agencies.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. The province in the past has seen Arab separatists attack oil pipelines. Ahvaz is in the center of Khuzestan province, where there have been sporadic protests by minority Arabs in predominantly Shi'ite Iran.

Anthony Joshua v Alexander Povetkin: Tale of the tape
In an interview with media on preparing for the fight, Joshua said, "Yeah I'm focused. I don't make predictions, it will be an interesting and thrilling fight".

European countries. Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said Iran "asked their governments to condemn the attack and extradite people linked to it to Iran to be put on trial".

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the assault in Ahvaz, which saw gunfire spray into a crowd of marching guardsmen, bystanders and government officials watching from a nearby platform.

Hamid Baeidinejad, Iran's ambassador to the United Kingdom, called the channel's decision a "heinous act" in a post on Twitter and said his country would file a complaint with British authorities over the broadcast.

The United States was not the only country to delay its messages of condolences to Iran - notably, unlike many other nations, it does not have an ambassador in Tehran.

An Ahvaz activist was assassinated past year in the Netherlands, allegedly by the Iranian regime.

The allegation will nearly certainly ratchet up tensions with Iran's regional rival Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies, who along with the United States have been working to isolate the Islamic Republic.

Iran has ballistic missiles with a range of up to 3,500 kilometres (2,200 miles), enough to reach both Israel and United States bases in the Middle East.

"Iran will neither abandon its defensive weapons nor will reduce its defense capabilities", Rouhani said.

In June 2017, coordinated assaults claimed by Islamic State on the country's parliament and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini killed 17 people. Some 60 people were wounded in the attack, a lot of them civilians. 34 are killed and more than 80 wounded.
