Islamic State Issued a Video, Claimed Responsibility for Iran Attack

Iran's intelligence ministry said Tuesday that investigators had found the deadly parade attack was mounted by "jihadist separatists".

When asked by reporters at the Pentagon if Iran's threat worry him, Mattis said: "No it does not".

"The Persian Gulf states are providing monetary, military and political support for these groups", Rouhani said, calling the USA "the sponsor" of "these small mercenary countries in the region", their goal being to "cause chaos and unrest in our country". "And I am hopeful that cooler, wiser heads will prevail".

Saying the separatists who killed at least 25 people at an Iranian military parade are allied with the US and Saudi Arabia, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says those responsible "will certainly be severely punished".

Mourners waved red, green and black flags with revolutionary messages, as well as the flags of Arab tribes from the surrounding Khuzestan region.

The video, which was published and then deleted by the Fars news agency, comes in the aftermath of an assault during an Iranian military parade on Saturday that left 25 dead, including 12 members of the Islamic Republic's Revolutionary Guard.

State TV reported late Monday that authorities have detained 22 suspects linked to the group behind the attack and confiscated ammunition and communication equipment.

Commodity traders Trafigura and Mercuria said today that Brent could rise to $90 per barrel by Christmas and pass $100 in early 2019, as markets tighten once USA sanctions against Iran are fully implemented from November.

Iranian concerns about US interference are linked more to John Bolton, now US President Donald Trump's National Security Adviser who spoke in support of MEK as an alternative to the Iranian government at the group's annual conference in 2017.

Guards Brigadier General Hossein Salami, in a speech broadcast on state TV, said: "You have seen our revenge before".

Under Khamenei's orders, Iran now limits its ballistic missiles to a range of 2,000 kilometres, which gives Tehran the range to strike Israel, Gulf countries like Saudi Arabia and the UAE, as well as regional American military bases.

On Saturday, gunmen fired on a viewing stand in Ahvaz where officials had gathered to watch an annual parade marking the start of Iran's 1980-88 war with Iraq. But that remark came a week after Trump and Rouhani traded threats, and Iran's leadership replied by saying the time for talks was before, not after, Trump withdrew the US from the Iran nuclear deal.

President Rouhani said the Unites States and Gulf states are causing bloodshed and threatened a thorough response.

Speaking at the funeral, Mr Alavi said intelligence ministry agents and other security personnel would catch all of those connected to the attack, adding that a majority were already in custody.

"He can blame us all he wants".

Arab separatists in the region claimed the attack and Iranian officials have blamed them for the assault.

Khamenei, who has final say on all state matters, said Monday that the attack showed Iran has "a lot of enemies", according to remarks posted on his website.

Karim Dahimi, a human rights activist in London, told Reuters local sources had said more than 300 people had been arrested in the cities of Ahvaz, Khorramshahr and Abadan in recent days, mostly from the Sunni Muslim community.
