A l'occasion de cette Journée nationale des forces armées, le président Hassan Rohani a promis que "l'Iran n'abandonnera pas ses armes défensives, y compris ses missiles qui mettent l'Amérique tellement en colère".

Téhéran a dénoncé dans un premier temps un acte "terroriste" et accusé un "régime étranger" soutenu par Washington d'être derrière l'attentat. Une attaqué également revendiquée par Daesh. "Trois ont été envoyés en enfer sur les lieux de l'attaque et le quatrième, qui avait été blessé et arrêté, a rejoint l'enfer peu après du fait de la gravité de ses blessures", a-t-il expliqué.

Un défilé militaire dans la ville iranienne d'Ahvaz a été la cible d'un attentat qui a tué plusieurs personnes, dont des civils, samedi 22 septembre.

Douze des 25 tués étaient des membres des Gardiens de la Révolution, et cette attaque est l'une des plus meurtrières à avoir visé cette unité d'élite, fer de lance de la révolution islamique iranienne. "Parmi les martyrs, figurent une fillette et un ancien combattant qui a été tué sur sa chaise roulante", a déclaré le général de brigade Abolfazl Shekarchi, porte-parole des forces armées iraniennes, sur la télévision d'Etat.

Il survient dans un climat de tensions très fortes entre l'Iran et les États-Unis, qui s'apprêtent à intensifier début novembre leurs sanctions contre la République islamique. L'attaque n'a pas été revendiquée mais le ministre iranien des Affaires étrangères, Mohamad Javad Zarif, a déclaré que l'assaut avait été mené par "des terroristes recrutés, formés, armés et payés par un régime étranger".

Selon plusieurs médias locaux, les assaillants étaient vêtus de treillis militaires.

"Jusqu'à présent, cet attentat terroriste a fait 29 martyrs et 57 blessés", a annoncé la chaîne officielle en langue arabe Al-Alam, en citant le député Mojtaba Zolnouri, membre de la Commission parlementaire de la Sécurité nationale et des affaires étrangères.

Le Khouzestan a été une des régions iraniennes les plus touchées par les combats pendant la guerre Iran-Irak.

Les Gardiens de la Révolution, l'armée idéologique de la République islamique, ont accusé les assaillants d'être liés à un groupe séparatiste arabe soutenu "par l'Arabie saoudite".

Dans une vidéo publiée en mars 2017, l'organisation sunnite avait menacé d'agir en Iran en représailles au soutien militaire et logistique apporté par Téhéran aux autorités de Damas et de Bagdad, adversaires du groupe jihadiste en Syrie et en Irak. "L'Iran tient les parrains régionaux du terrorisme et leurs maîtres américains pour responsables de ce genre d'attaque", a-t-il ajouté.

Dans un discours à Téhéran samedi peu avant l'attentat, M. Rohani a prévenu que son pays augmenterait "jour après jour" ses "capacités défensives", faisant référence aux missiles que développe Téhéran et qui inquiètent les Occidentaux.
