Dozens were injured and 12 killed in attacks on both Iran’s parliament building and the shrine of its revolutionary leader. Both attacks were claimed by ISIS, reports the Times of Israel:
Gunmen and suicide bombers stormed Iran’s parliament and the shrine of its revolutionary leader on Wednesday, killing 12 people and injuring 39 in the first attacks in the country claimed by the Islamic State group.
The attacks ended after a standoff lasting several hours, during which the gunmen holed up in parliamentary office buildings.
IS released a video of the attackers from inside the building via its Amaq propaganda agency — a rare claim of responsibility while an attack was still going on.
