Tehran, Iran, Feb. 24 – The Supreme Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps accused the United States, Britain, and Israel of carrying out Wednesday’s bomb attack which devastated a revered Shiite shrine in the Iraqi city of Samarra and said that God and Muslims alike would strike at them in retaliation.

Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi made the comments on Thursday night at a memorial ceremony for senior IRGC officials who were killed in a military plane crash in January. His remarks were reported by Iran’s state-controlled media on Friday.

“We condemn the insolence of the mercenaries of Zionism, the British and the Americans in their outrage against the sacred shrine of Imam Hadi and Imam Hassan al-Askari”, Safavi said.

“Those who masterminded this catastrophe should know that they will soon receive a heavy slap on the face from God and the believers in the Imams”, the Revolutionary Guards commander added.

“Muslim nations will not put up with this impudence”, he said.

Safavi called on Iranians to “show their hatred of the Zionist, British, and American mercenaries during the week-long period of mourning declared by His Eminence the Supreme Leader”.
