ISIS on Wednesday claimed responsibility for a pair of attacks in Tehran that included suicide bombers and teams of gunmen who stormed Iran’s parliament and the nearby shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
Two security guards were killed and 30 other people were injured in the rare twin attacks, with the siege at the legislature still underway.
SITE Intel Group reported that this is the first attack orchestrated by ISIS in the country.
One of the attackers blew himself up inside the parliament building, where a session had been in progress, according to a statement carried by Iran’s state TV. It quoted lawmaker Elias Hazrati as saying the attackers were armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles.
