Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has condemned the recent deadly car bombing in the Iraqi city of Mosul.
In a Sunday statement, Qassemi denounced the incident as “shameful and inhumane” and offered condolences to the Iraqi government and people as well as the families of the victims.
“By conducting blind and indiscriminate terrorist acts targeting innocent and defenceless citizens, the remnants of terrorist groups intend to take revenge for the defeat they have suffered at the hands of the Iraqi nation and government; however, they will never succeed and will soon be wiped off the region forever,” said Qassemi.
Several people were killed and a dozen wounded Thursday when a car bomb exploded near a restaurant in Mosul around dinner time in a rare terrorist attack since ISIS militants were flushed out last year.
The restaurant is known to be frequented by security personnel.
