Of course, other sensitive places in Rasht were targeted by the terrorist acts."

Tundar, or the Kingdom Assembly of Iran, also known as Soldiers of the Kingdom Assembly of Iran, is an armed terrorist royalist group seeking to overthrow the ruling government and restore the monarchy in Iran, Iran Press reported.
Tundar claimed responsibility for the 2008 Shiraz explosion at the Hosseynieh Sayyed al-Shohada, in which 14 people, including children, were killed and 215 others were injured.
Mohammad-Reza Ali-Zamani and Arash Rahmanipour, accused of being members of the terrorist group, were arrested and tried for the bombing. In January 2010, they were executed for waging war against God and attempting to overthrow the Islamic Republic.
Tundar had also plotted several other terrorist acts in Iran in recent years, including blowing up the Sivand Dam in Shiraz, detonating cyanide bombs at Tehran's book exhibition, and exploding bombs during general ceremonies at the Imam Khomeini Mausoleum. The Iranian security forces foiled all these terrorist plots.
