Iran's media say eight members of Daesh Takfiri terrorist group who were involved in deadly attacks on the premises of the Parliament and the Mausoleum of the Founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini in capital Tehran previous year have been executed.

Information on when the executions took place was not provided, but Mizan described the activities of each of the eight people in detail.

He said that the psychological war is carried out by certain "extra-regional countries and anti-Iran groups".

The attacks were the first act of terror inside Iran claimed by the extremist group.

Iran has always been fighting against ISIL in Iraq and Syria.

IS claimed responsibility for the dual attack on Iran's parliament and the shrine of revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini that killed 17 people and wounded dozens.

"It is the Islamic Republic's principled policy to fight terrorism and this policy has so far produced positive results in the region and the world", he said, referring to Iran's support for anti-terrorism push in Syria and Iraq that succeeded in neutralizing ISIL.

Iran's security forces responded with heavy force.

Those executed included, Soleiman Mozafari, Esmail Sufi, Rahman Behrouz, Majed Mortezai, Sirous Azizi, Ayoub Esmaili, Khosro Ramezani and Osman Behrouz, according to Al Jazeera.

Legal proceedings continue for others allegedly involved in the attacks, Mizan Online said.

Iran is has garnered worldwide attention for its enforcement of the death penalty, however, the carrying out of mass executions is somewhat rare. Authorities arrested suspected ISIS militants, including their wives. That deal is now in danger of collapse with America's withdrawal from the accord.

Those executions represent one of the darkest moments of Iran's post-revolution history and are still not recognised by its government.
