Bombing in Iran: The Islamic State on Thursday has taken responsibility for the deadly twin bomb blasts in Iran's Kerman that left 84 people dead on Wednesday, in Iran's worst attack in decades. As many as 284 people were injured. Taking to Telegram, the dreaded terror group termed the attacks as a “dual martyrdom operation”, further revealing the modus operandi of the operation.
The dreaded terror group shed light on how the two militants carried explosives, hidden in their belts, before they exploded “near the grave of the hypocrite leader”, in an apparent dig at General Suleimani. The powerful general was killed by an American drone four years back under Donald Trump's regime.
The two attackers were identified as Omar-al-Mowahid and Sayefulla al-Mujahid. Initially, the Iranian authorities held Israel responsible, raising speculations that the ongoing war in Hamas might turn out into a full-blown conflict with Iran's possible entry.
