Islamic State Threatens Iran with More Attacks

An Islamic State spokesman released a statement Wednesday threatening more attacks against Iran, days after the group claimed responsibility for a mass shooting at a military parade that left at least 25 dead.

Iran's security is "flimsier than a spider's web, and with God's help, what comes will be worse and more bitter," Abu al-Hassan al-Muhajir said in a statement released through the Telegram messaging app.

The Iranian government has blamed the attack on "jihadist separatists" within the country.

IS released a video shortly after the attack purporting to show the three gunmen who committed the massacre, but some observers said they did not match the appearances of the attackers.
