Terrorists target IRGC bus in southeastern Iran

In September past year, Isis militants and an Arab group claimed responsibility for a deadly assault on a military parade, also in the country's south, that killed and wounded dozens of people, including members of the Guards.

Meanwhile, the IRGC Qods Base has issued a statement, condemning the attack as a revenge for the failure of the foreign plots in the aftermath of the celebrations of the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

"In this suicide attack a auto filled with explosives blew up besides a bus carrying a unit of the Guards ground forces causing the martyrdom and wounding of a number of the protectors of our Islamic homeland's border".

Last September at least 29 people were killed and over 60 wounded in an attack on an IRGC parade in the southwestern city of Ahvaz.

Jaish al-Adl claimed Wednesday's bombing in a statement online.

Suicide bombings are rare in Iran where security is pretty stable.

The report was led by Eric Jeffrey Topol, an American cardiologist, geneticist, and digital medicine researcher. Evidence suggests the technology could save 5.7m hours of GPs' time across England annually, the report says.

Both the jihadist group Islamic State (IS) and Iranian ethnic Arab separatists claimed they were behind the assault, but neither provided conclusive evidence. In 2018, the Guards launched missiles at an Iranian Kurdish armed opposition group in northern Iraq.

The group's Quds Force unit said the United States, its allies and Zionism shared responsibility for the attack, without elaborating on the claim. Prince Mohammed is due in Pakistan, a major recepient of the kingdom's largess, in the coming days.

No further details about the attack were immediately available. "USA seems to always make the same wrong choices, but expect different results", Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif said in reaction to the attack.

On Twitter he asked: "Is it no coincidence that Iran is hit by terror on the very day that #WarsawCircus begins?" President Donald Trump, who campaigned on a promise of tearing up Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers, withdrew the USA from the accord last May.

Khamenei, who earlier approved President Hassan Rouhani's outreach to the West during the nuclear deal negotiations, dismissed any future dealings with the U.S.
