The video pertains to September that year, when the outfit known as al-Ahwaziya, struck a military parade in the city of Ahvaz, the capital of Khuzestan Province, before proudly claiming the atrocity.
In the footage, around five terrorists, four in fatigues and one plainclothes, are seen targeting the parade that was being jointly partaken by Iran’s Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC). The plainclothes attacker tries to advance far ahead of the others, who try to cover him by shooting at nearby bystanders and firing wildly in the general direction of the grandstand that was hosting military top brass.
Iranian defense forces are also seen intervening fast, with snipers targeting and neutralizing two of those in fatigues. The plainclothes attacker is then seen fleeing back from the site of the attack, but is similarly gunned down in the process.
The sheer gore of the incident, however, did not bring any Western media outlet to recognize it as a terrorist attack. Shortly after the attack, the London-based Iran International television channel that is funded by Riyadh even allowed the terrorist group spokesman to go live on air to defend the bloodshed.
