Bahrain foiled a terrorist attack that was backed by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), local media reported on Sunday.

Bahraini news site Akhbar Al Khaleej said the failed bombing sought to target public and security facilities in retaliation for the assassination of Iranian commander Qassem Suleimani in January by a US drone strike.

News of the planned attack came a day after the head of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard, Hossein Salami, warned the United States that "everybody who had role in the event will be hit".

There are believed to be 18 suspects related to the attack, including nine currently in Iran. One of the defendants said he received military training at a Hezbollah camp in Iraq, Akhbar Al Khaleej reported.

Bahrain's security forces said they foiled the planned attack after finding an explosive device in the Badei area meant to target a visiting foreign delegation.

The foiling of the attack was also reported by Saudi state TV station Al-Ekhbariya, citing Bahrain's Ministry of Interior.
