Mourners Demand Revenge, While Iran Arrests 11 Suspects Over Bomb Blasts

Iranian officials said that police have caught 11 people they suspect were part of two bomb attacks that killed more than 100 people at a gathering to honor the military leader, General Qasem Soleiman, who was killed. The Islamic State (IS) said they carried out the attacks in Kerman, southeast Iran, on Wednesday.

The police in Iran arrested two people for helping the suicide bombers in Kerman, and they are also investigating nine other people in different parts of the country for possible involvement in the incident.

The bombings were the worst attacks in Iran since the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

On Friday, the victims were buried. People cried and chanted “revenge, revenge” as they watched on TV.

More than 100 people lost their lives during a ceremony that paid tribute to the late General, as explosions ripped through the crowd. The explosions happened while the situation in the region was very tense because Israel had been attacking Hamas in Gaza for almost three months.

The intelligence ministry found explosive materials and devices used to make bombs. They also found equipment to set off the bombs and thousands of small pieces used in bomb vests. They found out that one of the suicide bombers was from Tajikistan.

IS members exploded bombs at Soleimani’s memorial.

“We will find you wherever you are,” said Major-General Hossein Salami, a commander of the Revolutionary Guards, at the funeral in Kerman’s Imam Ali religious center.

In 2022, a group called IS said they were behind an attack on a shrine in Iran that killed 15 people. They have also claimed other attacks in the past, like twin bombings in 2017 at Iran’s parliament and the tomb of the Islamic Republic’s founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
