Mastermind of Ahvaz parade attack killed in Iraq

Mastermind of Ahvaz parade attack killed in Iraq

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said they had killed the 'mastermind' behind an attack on a military parade in Ahvaz last month.

The Guards said in a statement published on state media their forces had killed a man named Abu Zaha and four other militants in Diyala province in Iraq. 

One news website run by Iran’s state television said Abu Zaha was a member of ISIS, Reuters reported.

At least 25 people died and 60 were injured when four gunmen fired on the Iranian military parade in the Iranian city of Ahvaz in late September. Half of those killed were members of the Guard.
