The suicide bomber who carried out last week's attack targeting Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) was a citizen of Pakistan, an IRGC commander said on Tuesday.
According to Gen. Mohammad Pakpour, the bomber has been identified as Hafiz Mohammad Ali. He added that there was a second Pakistani national involved in the crime.
Pakistan, for its part, condemned the suicide attack and noted that it was cooperating in the probe.
This follows the 13 February attack, which involved a car loaded with explosives ramming into a bus carrying the IRGC servicemen. The explosion that followed the attack resulted in 27 deaths and 13 other casualties. After the incident, on 16 February, dozens of comrades of the fallen circled caskets on the back of trucks as thousands of mourners attended a mass funeral for the soldiers.
