New Iran video threatens Israel, Gulf states with missile strikes and ‘heavy punishment’ following parade attack
The video, which was published and then deleted by the Fars news agency, comes in the aftermath of an assault during an Iranian military parade on Saturday that left 25 dead, including 12 members of the Islamic Republic’s Revolutionary Guard. Iran has charged the attack was carried out by militants trained by Israel and the Gulf states, and supported by the U.S. American officials deny having played any role.
“The era of the hit-and-run has expired,” Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is heard saying in the video, in a segment taken from an April speech, according to the Associated Press. “A heavy punishment is underway.”
Other scenes in the video – which features music similar to what would be heard in an action movie film trailer – show missiles being launched into the sky and bullseyes focusing on Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s largest city, and Jerusalem. In another portion, a bullseye also moves over Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, the Associated Press reported.
The video was removed ahead of President Hassan Rouhani’s speech at the U.N. General Assembly in New York City on Tuesday, but Twitter users were able to download and save portions of it before it disappeared. There appeared to be no immediate response to the video from Saudi Arabia, Israel or the United Arab Emirates.
Meanwhile, Iranian officials on Tuesday identified the five men who they say carried out the parade attack in Ahvaz, in which militants disguised as soldiers opened fire as rows of troops marched past officials.
Authorities have blamed the attack on Arab separatists. Yet at least two of the men identified have appeared in a video distributed by ISIS in which the terror group claims responsibility, further complicating the process of determining who exactly was behind the assault.
