A major terrorist attack took place at the Iranian parliament and the Mausoleum of Ayatollah Khomeini in Tehran on Wednesday morning.
According to reports, at least 12 people are dead and several more injured after a group of militants stormed the buildings and started opening fire.
All of the attackers were eventually killed by Iranian police as they arrived at the scene.

Conservative Tribune reports:
The attack at the parliament occurred at the same time terrorists launched an assault on Khomeini’s mausoleum with guns and two suicide bombs, the U.K. Independent reported. Heavy gunfire was reportedly heard from inside both buildings.
Terrorists killed a security guard and injured at least four others in the attack on the Iranian mausoleum. Jamaran News posted an image of the explosion to Twitter.
Of the 12 victims, 11 died at the parliament building, and one at the mausoleum.
Six attackers were reportedly killed. Four militants were killed at parliament — formally known as the Iranian Consultative Assembly and two were killed at the mausoleum. Five of the attackers were men, and one at the mausoleum was a woman, the New York Times reported.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks, which marks the first attack they have ever done against Iran.
Enough is enough. ISIS must be eradicated immediately. Their cowardly tactics are unacceptable and it is time that the West joins together and annihilates them from the planet. God blessed us with the strongest military in the world and he would want us to use it to protect Christianity.
