ISIS terrorists launched a couple of coordinated hits on two symbolic areas of Tehran on Wednesday — the latest in what seems to be the terror group’s special way of celebrating Ramadan.
First, they stormed the city’s parliamentary building, a facility in the heart of the Tehran — and where women, Christians and Jews work.
Then they detonated bombs and unleashed gun attacks on the tomb of the republic’s revolutionary founder, Ayatollah Khomeini.
Dozens were killed and injured, and several citizens taken hostage.
“Attackers have mounted simultaneous gun and suicide bomb assaults on Iran’s parliament building and the tomb of the republic’s revolutionary founder in Tehran.
“At least seven people were killed and 35 others injured in the twin assaults, the semi-official Fars agency reported.
“State media reported that gunmen stormed the parliament building in Tehran and went on a shooting spree. At least one attacker detonated a suicide bomb. Five people died and at least 25 were injured there, Fars reported.
“At the same time, a gun and suicide bomb attack targeted the Ayatollah Khomeini mausoleum on the southern outskirts of the Iranian capital. Two people died and 10 were injured at the shrine, Fars said.”
The attacks come on the heels of an ISIS call to kill the infidel, made on its Internet news service in the leadup to Ramadan.
