In late October 2022, a group of gunmen opened fire on the territory of the Shah Cheragh shrine in Iran's southern city of Shiraz. As a result of the attack, at least 13 people were killed and 45 others were injured. The Iranian authorities accused the United States and Israel of organizing this terrorist act to further fuel instability in the country amid mass unrest over the death of female activist Mahsa Amini.
