The terror attack in south western Iran has so far claimed the lives of 25 people and injured 60 more, the deputy governor of Khuzestan for political and social affairs said.

Ali Hossein Hosseinzadeh said that due to critical conditions of the injured people the number of martyrs has increased.

All four terrorists were killed, he added.

Fortunately, other injured people are in satisfactory conditions, he noted.

“The terrorists disguised as the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and Basiji (volunteer) forces opened fire at the authorities and people from behind the stand during the parade,' Governor of Khuzestan Gholam-Reza Shariati said earlier.

The self-proclaimed Saudi-affiliated Al-Ahwaz terrorist group claimed the responsibility for the attack.
