Ramadamabombathon 2017 Resumes Islamic State Attacks Iran

Well the reprieve was short lived. Islamic State terrorists have attacked Iran.An Iranian state-run news website says 12 people were killed and 42 wounded in attacks on the country’s parliament and the shrine of its revolutionary leader.

Mizan Online, which is affiliated with the judiciary, attributed the toll from Wednesday’s attacks to Pirhossein Kolivand, the head of Iran’s emergency department.

Several gunmen and suicide bombers attacked parliament and the shrine to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, setting off an hours-long siege at the legislature that ended with four attackers dead. The Islamic State group claimed the attacks.Again the timing stinks. Its more IS death throes. But given the tensions between Qatar and SA over Yemen and it seeking aid from Iran and Turkey. Very dangerous times.
