The death toll in the terrorist attack during the Iranian military parade in the southwestern city of Ahvaz has reached 24. This is reported on the Twitter channel Press TV.
It is also noted that among the dead there are children.
We recall, on Saturday, September 22, armed militants opened fire during the Iranian military parade. It is reported that the attackers were dressed in military uniform and fired from the park near which the parade was held. The shooting lasted for about 10 minutes.
Earlier it was reported that at least 20 people were injured, and about 10 people were killed. According to the local deputy governor, two of the militants were killed, two more were arrested.
Today, Iran marks the anniversary of the beginning of the war of 1980-88 with Iraq by several national parades.
Earlier Iran threatened to restore uranium enrichment if Europe supports US sanctions. This was stated by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in an interview for Der Spiegel.
As Zarif said, the EU has not clearly reacted to the US withdrawal from the nuclear agreement.
"Europeans and other signatories must act to compensate for the consequences of US sanctions," he said and stressed that, first of all, this applies to the banking system and the oil business.
In case of a violation of the "balance", Iran considers the option of a full break of the nuclear agreement concluded in 2015, or its partial application, one of the options of which is a return to enrichment of uranium.
Zarif also urged the EU countries to fine European companies that stop their business in Iran because of US sanctions.
"Europeans must decide whether they are ready to confirm their words with actions," he said.
At the moment, he said, the situation looks as if Europe is "subordinate to the American dictate."
We recall, May 8, US President Donald Trump said that America withdraws from the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program and restores sanctions against Iran. Sanctions will be renewed gradually, and this process will take from three to six months.
