Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei blames Gulf states for military parade attack


DUBAI: Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused U.S.-backed Gulf Arab states of carrying out a shooting attack on a military parade that killed 25 people, almost half of them members of the country`s elite Revolutionary Guards.

Khamenei ordered security forces to bring to justice those responsible for one of the worst assaults ever against the Revolutionary Guards, the most powerful military force in the country, which answers to him.

The allegation will likely ratchet up tensions with Iran`s rival Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies, who along with the United States have been working to isolate the Islamic Republic
