FILE - In this Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018 file photo provided by Mehr News Agency, an Iranian soldier carries a child away from a shooting during a military parade, in the southwestern city of Ahvaz, Iran. On Saturday, Arab separatists killed at least 25 people in an attack targeting the military parade in Iran, and President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani declared that the Iranian government would be toppled. From Saturday’s attack in Ahvaz to America resuming sanctions despite Iran’s compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal, pressure on Tehran is rising and its leaders are growing more combative toward the West.
