At least 20 Guard personnel killed in Iran bombing

Suicide attack kills 20 members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard

A truck bomb attack on a bus carrying members of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, killed 27 Guards and wounded 13 others in the southeastern Sistan and Baluchistan Province on Wednesday, according to Iranian media reports.

The force said on Wednesday a suicide bomber driving a vehicle laden with explosives had attacked a bus transporting members of the Guards in the province of Sistan-Baluchestan.

Iranian authorities say the militant group Jaish al Adl, which claimed responsibility for the attack. It also came two days after Iran marked the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution and four decades of tense relations with the west.

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei also spoke out against the conference, citing it as an example of U.S. failure against the Islamic republic.

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

A photo released by the news agency showed a hulk of twisted metal at the scene. Five later were returned to Iran and six remained held.

An attack by gunmen on a military parade in the city of Ahvaz last autumn killed at least 25 people, including 12 members of the Guards.

"We will certainly make this mercenary group pay for the blood of our martyrs", the official IRNA news agency quoted the Iranian president as saying in response to Wednesday's attack.

"They used the leverage they have with various countries in order to attract more people to this conference".

It came on the same day that a conference convened by the U.S. in Warsaw was to include discussions on what Washington describes as Iran's malign influence across the wider Middle East.

The bombing happened as world leaders gathered in Warsaw, Poland, for a meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

"It is another attempt by the United States to pursue an obsession with Iran that is not well-founded", Zarif told a Tehran news conference. There have been sporadic protests in the country as well, incidents applauded by Trump amid Washington's maximalist approach to Tehran.

"Is it no coincidence that Iran is hit by terror on the very day that (hashtag) WarsawCircus begins?"

"About the United States, the resolution of any issues is not imaginable and negotiations with it will bring nothing but material and spiritual harm", Khamenei said in a statement.
