The attackers targeted two symbolically significant places: the Parliament building and the mausoleum of the Islamic Republic's founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini-not to be confused with the country's current Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Iranian media reported on June 9 that two of the suspects were arrested in a police raid in the western province of Kermanshah, where "some terrorist cells have also been dismantled".

"The mastermind and main commander of terrorist attacks on the parliament and Mausoleum of Ayatollah Khomeini was killed today by the security forces", intelligence minister Mahmoud Alavi was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

The ministry announced on Friday it had caught more than 41 suspects in connection to the Tehran attacks across the country.

The intelligence ministry said they were Iranians who had joined IS and travelled to its strongholds in Iraq and Syria before returning home. Daesh reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.

A senior official, who also asked not to be named, said the attacks would push Iran toward "a harsher regional policy".

Besides, the speaker is equipped with six microphones, through which you can trigger the Apple's own VA, calling "Hey Siri ". Siri was introduced as a feature in the iPhone 4S in 2011, three years before Amazon came out with Alexa and the Echo.

Iran is involved in fighting the terror outfit in both Syria and Iraq, where the Wahhabi-Salafi group, armed and bankrolled with Saudi petrodollars considers all Shia apostates punishable by death, has been spreading death and destruction for years.

Alavi said that in the last month the intelligence ministry had identified and crushed "a terrorist team" nearly every day but had not publicized it to avoiding spreading fear among the public.

In a condolence message read to mourners ahead of a funeral for the victims of Wednesday's attack that killed 17 and wounded scores, Khamenei blasted leaders in Washington and Riyadh.

At a ceremony held in parliament, attended by newly re-elected moderate President Hassan Rouhani, speaker Ali Larijani also attacked the United States and Saudi Arabia.

"Allah permitting, this brigade will be the first of jihad in Iran, and we ask our brothers the Muslims to follow us, as the fire that was ignited will not be put out, Allah permitting", one of the masked fighters said, according to SITE.

"Daesh is an worldwide danger", he said.
