Also in December of the same year, four Iranian policemen were killed and 42 other people were wounded in a suicide auto bomb attack on a police headquarters in the country's southeast.

"The suicide attack on an Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps personnel bus happened on the Khash-Zahedan road", IRNA said.

The attack came on the heels of Iran's celebrating the 40th anniversary of its revolution, which saw the overthrow of the USA -backed shah as well as the founding of the Revolutionary Guard Corps, which is tasked with preserving the Islamic Republic.

Jaish al-Adl claimed Wednesday's bombing in a statement online. In 2018, the Guards launched missiles at an Iranian Kurdish armed opposition group in northern Iraq.

It came on the same day that a conference convened by the United States in Warsaw was to include discussions on what Washington describes as Iran's malign influence across the wider Middle East.

Amid the new tensions, Iran's already-weakened economy has been further challenged.

"Is it no coincidence that Iran is hit by a terror on the very day that the #WarsawCircus begins?" he wrote.

Khamenei, who earlier approved President Hassan Rouhani's outreach to the West during the nuclear deal negotiations, dismissed any future dealings with the U.S.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif directly linked the meeting to the attack Wednesday.

"I believe it's dead on arrival or dead before arrival", he said at a news conference before the bombing.
