TEHRAN, June 9 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Friday that the recent terrorist attacks in Iran will result in hatred towards the United States and Saudi Arabia, the leader's official website reported.

The terrorist acts which led to the "martyrdom and injury" of the Iranians is "a clear sign of enmity" of the mercenaries of global arrogance against the Iranian nation, Khamenei said in a condolence message to the nation over Wednesday's twin deadly attacks by the Islamic State (IS) militants in Iran.

"The definite result of these (terrorist) acts will lead to an increase in the hatred towards the U.S. governments and its regional elements like Saudi Arabia," he said.

Such crimes will not shatter the will of the Iranians, and the nation will move ahead "unified and even with stronger determination," Khamenei stressed.

On Friday, Iranians participated in the mourning ceremony of the 17 people who were killed in the twin attacks against Iran's parliament and Imam Khomeini mausoleum in the capital Tehran.
