Iran President Hassan Rouhani stated that Tehran will “undoubtedly avenge” the brutal terrorist attack that killed over two dozen members of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), regretting the “wrong” policies of some of Iran’s neighbours, in an indirect reference to Pakistan.

“Terrorists should know that our nation will undoubtedly avenge the blood of our dear martyrs.”

An explosives-laden car rammed into a bus carrying IRGC personnel in Sistan-and-Baluchestan Province earlier this week, killing 27 of them and wounding 13 others. Pakistan based and backed terror group Jaish ul-Adl, which is linked to al-Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the attack.

Various civilian and military Iranian officials have in the wake of the Wednesday terrorist attack used unprecedented rhetoric against the government in Islamabad for harbouring terrorists, who routinely stage attacks against Iran from inside Pakistan and then retreat into Pakistani territory.

President Rouhani said, however, that Iran sought brotherly and cordial relations with all countries, adding that Iran had never initiated any aggression. He also denounced attempts by certain powers to sow discord among various ethnicities, religions, and nations in the Middle East.
