Iran arrests dozens of IS 'agents'

Eight others have been arrested in the Alborz Province in connection with the attacks, according to reports by state news agencies. No evidence, however, has yet been presented. "Iranian people reject such United States claims of friendship".

“We possess documents and information showing the direct supports by the USA imperialism for this highly disgusting stream [IS] in the region which has destroyed the Islamic countries and created a wave of massacres and clashes, ” Fars news agency quoted Izadi as saying.

"We are facing a proxy warfare in the region as a new trick by the arrogant powers against the Islamic Republic", Izadi said on Sunday.

The statement of the Deputy Chief of Staff echoes the remarks made by Irans Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani on Friday.

"Fortunately, the USA and its regional stooges showed their true colors more than ever and it was proved that those who support terrorism and perform sword dance are worldwide Daesh", Ayatollah Amoli Larijani said Monday at a meeting of high-ranking judiciary officials.

Seventeen people were killed last week in a terror attack claimed by IS in Tehran.

Thousands gathered to commemorate the fallen, shouting “Death to Saudi Arabia” and “Death to America.” . ISIS had claimed responsibility for the violence at the parliament and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

Ali Asghar Gorjizadeh, the commander of IRGC's Ansar-ol-Mahdi Corps, which is responsible for protection of senior Iranian officials, added that from the very first moments after the twin terrorist attacks, members of the Ansar-ol-Mahdi Corps took measures to encounter the terrorists.

Larijani went on hail the value of the unity created among officials and nation in the wake of the dual terrorist attacks on Tehran, adding "the unity must not be damaged under any circumstances".

At least 12 people were killed when six attackers mounted simultaneous gun and suicide bomb attacks on Iran's Parliament building and the tomb of the republic's revolutionary founder, in one of the most audacious assaults to hit Tehran in decades.
