Meanwhile, the details of the attack are becoming clearer. The Iranian Interior Ministry explained that the terrorists, who were disguised as women, entered the building via the main entrance. The terrorists then opened fire in a random manner, murdering several people and taking a few others hostage. One of the terrorists was wearing an explosive belt and eventually blew himself up.
The terror attack at the parliament building was followed by a second attack, which occurred at Ayatollah Khomeini’s shrine. During this attack, a female terrorist opened fire and then blew herself up at the scene, murdering at least one and injuring several more.
In light of the twin attacks in Iran’s capital city, Iranian intelligence agencies called on the public to avoid public transportation for the time being. The agencies also announced that several terrorists who were on their way to carry out a third attack somewhere in the city were arrested.
