In the meeting Alavi emphasized that Israel is the only regime that benefits from terrorist acts in the Middle East.
Iran’s Minister of Intelligence Seyyed Mahmoud Alavi and the head of Lebanon’s main security apparatus held talks on ways to boost cooperation between the two countries in the fight against terrorism.
In the meeting, Alavi and Major General Abbas Ibrahim, the head of Lebanon’s Directorate of General Security (DGS), explored avenues for cooperation between the two countries in the anti-terror campaign.
Alavi emphasized that Israel is the only regime that benefits from terrorist acts in the Middle East and added that Iran’s intelligence ministry is ready to cooperate with Lebanon to uproot terrorism in the region.
He also expressed condolences to the Lebanese people and government over the deaths of dozens of people in a recent terrorist attack near Beirut.
Major General Ibrahim, for his part, said Takfiri terrorism and Israel are the “two sides of the same coin”.
He underlined that terrorism and Zionism should be confronted simultaneously.
On November 12, 44 people were killed and nearly 240 others sustained injuries in Lebanon when two large explosions rocked a security post in Hussaineya Street in the crowded Borj al-Barajneh neighborhood in a southern suburb of Beirut.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the Beirut bombings.
