RNA - “There is every indication given the rhetoric that we hear from the United States, Israel and their allies that these attacks are directly tied to those nations through intermediaries… So the fact that there is this meeting playing out in Europe which was originally planned to be a war conference of sort, then was toned down when the EU expressed reservations and a number of EU countries decided they wouldn’t attend, it was toned down only to see in the last day [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu himself describe it as a meeting among European nations to discuss the imperative of literally going to war with Iran in order to achieve peace, echoed of course by the American vice president who quite absurdly talked about Iran planning another holocaust against Israel,” Barry Grossman, an international lawyer, told Press TV in an interview on Friday.
“This kind of rhetoric is not accidental, it is completely absurd and I don’t think there is anything ironic about the timing of this tragic terrorist attack within Iran; because if we take people who speak on behalf of the US security apparatus and the current presidential administration at their word, this is exactly the sort of thing that they are trying to achieve. They are trying to achieve unrest, stir up civil disobedience and chaos within Iran as part of their agenda to go to war with Iran,” he added.
On Wednesday, an explosives-laden car rammed into a bus carrying Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) personnel on a road between the cities of Zahedan and Khash, leaving 27 of them dead and 13 others wounded.
The so-called Jaish ul-Adl terrorist group reportedly claimed responsibility for the bombing.
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif raised suspicion about the attack’s possible links to the anti-Iran summit co-hosted by the US and Poland, which kicked off in Warsaw on Wednesday.
President Hassan Rouhani also described the US and the Israeli regime as the “root causes of terror” in the Middle East region as he condemned the deadly attack on the IRGC forces.
The IRGC has vowed a strong response to those behind the bloodshed.
