Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Friday strongly condemned a terrorist bomb attack on worshippers in Saudi Arabia which left people martyred and wounded.

Those behind the terrorist act should be identified and brought to justice, ministry’s Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said in reaction to the fatal suicide attack on Imam Ali (AS) Mosque in al-Qadeeh village located in Saudi Arabia’s eastern Qatif governorate.

She said that efforts should be made to confront all terrorist and extremist groups and cease imposing irreparable costs on regional nations.

The attack on the minority Shiite mosque in the Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia left 17 killed and 13 others wounded when some 150 worshippers were performing Friday Prayers.
