Iranian Parliament Member Heshmatollah Falahat-Pisheh who escaped the assassination attack said terrorist groups are trying to pretend that Iran is an insecure country.
“Terrorist groups which are after annoying moves are trying to pretend that our country is insecure,” he said.
The groups supported from abroad are trying to show that Iran in an insecure country through these failed actions, he said, adding that these acts would never prevent services provided by Iranian officials in border areas.
Falahat-Pisheh continued that there is full security in the region.
Two people were martyred and three were wounded in the assassination attack on Sunday when gunmen riddled his car with bullets in the western province of Kermanshah.
Four gunmen opened fire on the convoy of the lawmaker and his accompanying delegation after blocking their path near Rijab, a village in Ban Zardeh Rural District, in the Central District of Dalahu County, Kermanshah Province.
The attackers fled the area after setting fire to their own car.
Falahat-Pisheh, Faramarz Akbari, the governor of Dalahu, as well as Seyed Farzad Afzali, the province’s head of Fisheries Organization, suffered serious injuries in the shooting, according to Yusuf Shah Hosseini, political, security and social deputy of the province’s governor general.
The MP’s general condition is good, but he would require some time to fully recover.
However, driver of Dalahu’s governor and Nikmarz, the head of Kermanshah’s Veterinary Organization, were martyred in the terrorist attack.
