The chairman of the Iranian military's Joint Chiefs of Staff suggested that Israel was behind the shooting and bombing attacks in Norway last week that killed dozens of people, Iranian news agency ISNA reported on Saturday.

"Any examination [of the] causes and intentions behind the Norway attack will be useless without searching for hands of Zionists involved in the attack," Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Major-General Hassan Firouzabadi said, according to the report.

The United States, he said, "should consider that Zionists are supporting the so-called religious hardliners, terrorists and racist measures. This is the occupier Zionist regime which merely things about its wrong and racist beliefs and exploits other people as puppets to obtain its goals."
