Explosions in Iran on Wednesday, Jan. 3, killed at least 103 people and wounded over 211 others, according to Iranian officials.

These explosions come as the Middle East remains on edge over Israel’s war on Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

The two blasts – minutes apart - targeted a commemoration honouring prominent Iranian general Qaaem Soleimani, the head of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, slain in a U.S. airstrike in 2020.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for what Iranian state media called a “terroristic” attack shortly after the blasts in Kerman, about 820 kilometres (510 miles) southeast of the capital, Tehran.
