NNA – Lebanon’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday strongly condemned the dual terror attacks which targeted the headquarters of the Iranian Shura Council and the shrine of late Imam Khomeini, in the Iranian capital, Tehran, that left behind a number of dead and wounded.
“These two criminal attacks demonstrate the dreadfulness of the Takfiri terrorist ideology, through de-sanctifying a religious shrine and the headquarters of a legislative authority… aimed at destabilizing Iran and its civil peace, and attempting to provoke sectarian strife within the Iranian society and between Iran and the region,” a statement by the Foreign Ministry said.
The Foreign Ministry urged the international community to unite, without any delay, around one utmost priority: to defeat terrorism, uproot its intellectual roots, and eradicate its intellectual and funding sources without selectivity.
The Ministry underlined Lebanon’s full solidarity with Iran in the face of terrorist attacks, and expressed heartfelt condolences to the Iranian people, leadership and government on the victims of today’s attacks.
The Ministry also wished the wounded speedy recovery.
