Tehran, Iran, Feb. 22 – Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blamed the “intelligence agencies of the occupiers of Iraq and the Zionists” on Wednesday for carrying out the bomb attack on the holy Shiite Muslim shrine in the Iraqi city of Samarra.

Wednesday’s blast destroyed the golden dome of the Shrine in Samarra which was at the resting place of two revered Shiite Imams. It brought about a backlash of sectarian fighting as more than a dozen Sunni places of worship were attacked across Baghdad.

“This crime whose perpetrators were probably chosen from backward fanatics and unfortunate and ignorant mercenaries was without doubt planned by plotters with evil, satanic intentions. This is a political crime and its roots must be looked for in the intelligence agencies of the occupiers of Iraq and the Zionists”, the Supreme Leader said in a statement carried by all state-run news agencies. He was referring to the United States, Britain and Israel, the three governments that the Iranian theocracy regularly blames for the bombings in Iraq.

“The hegemonic powers that see the political and social situation in Iraq in conflict with their power-seeking goals make evil plots in their heads which include increasing insecurity and creating sectarian divisions”, Khamenei said.

Iranian-backed Shiite clerics in Iraq and Lebanon repeated Khamenei’s charges that the United States was behind the attacks. Abdul-Aziz Hakim, the Iranian-backed leader of the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq, blamed the United States for the bombing.

Khamenei called the bombing “another stain in the black record of the occupiers of Iraq”.
