Perpetrators of Shah Cheragh terrorist incident on trial

The first trial session for the three individuals involved in the terrorist attack on the Shah Cheragh shrine in Shiraz, Iran, took place recently. The main suspect, Rahmatollah Nowruzof from Tajikistan, was charged with engaging in acts of terrorism against Iran's security, as well as being a member of the Daesh terrorist group.

Iran (IMNA) -The other two suspects were accused of assisting in the commission of these crimes. Nowruzof, also known as Aslamyar, carried out the attack on August 13, using an assault rifle and multiple magazines filled with bullets. The Daesh terrorist group claimed responsibility for this horrific incident.

During the trial, Nowruzof explained that he became a member of Daesh through a foreign messaging app and was advised to travel to Turkey. He then illegally crossed into Iran, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, with the latter being where he underwent military training.

Upon returning to Iran, Nowruzof resided near the Shah Cheragh shrine for nearly a month, reestablished contact with Daesh, and received weapons. He admitted to not keeping track of the number of targets but expressed his intention to continue the operation until he ran out of ammunition.

Nowruzof revealed that he had been instructed to acquire two containers of gasoline, but he only managed to bring one in his backpack as he entered the holy shrine. He was apprehended before he could set fire to the carpets where worshippers were present.
