By Khalid Kazimov – Trend:
A senior Iranian official has accused Saudi Arabia of financing a recent terrorist attack in southwestern province of Khuzestan in Iran.
“The team that has recently carried out a shooting against religious gatherings and martyred two individuals received payment from Saudi security services,” the secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, told al-Alam TV Nov 11.
He also mentioned that the existing problems between Tehran and Riyadh are resolvable if Saudi officials stop acting "wicked" against Iran.
On October 16 two people were killed following a shooting incident in Dezful County in Khuzestan Province.
Masked gunmen in a car opened fire with automatic weapons on a group of people who were holding a ritual mourning for the third Shia imam Hussain ibn Ali.
Shamkhani also accused Saudi Arabia of launching air strikes against the civilians in Yemen.
