Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei claimed that the US is responsible for the twin terror attack in Tehran and warned that it will only increase the tensions between the countries.
Today (Friday), Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned that Iran’s hatred towards the US and Saudi Arabia will only increase following the combined terrorist attack in Tehran, where 17 people were murdered and approximately 40 others were injured.
“It will not damage our nation’s determination to fight terrorism,” Khamenei said at the funeral of some of those who were murdered. “But will only increase hatred for the governments of the US and their stooges in the region like Saudis.”
