Iran’s Foreign Ministry has strongly censured the Sunday terrorist blast in the Syrian capital of Damascus where a number of civilians were killed and wounded.
In a statement on Monday, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi condemned the deadly explosion and said, “Whenever the efforts by the friends of Syria succeed in reducing tension and starting negotiations, and on the other hand, Takfiri terrorists are placed in a position of weakness, we see such cowardly acts in which the terrorists take a blind revenge on civilians.”
Qassemi also offered his condolences to the families of the victims and expressed sympathy with the Syrian government and people.
The Iranian official also expressed the hope that terrorism would be eradicated in the region as soon as possible, especially in Syria and Iraq.
At least 20 people were killed and dozens more injured after three cars loaded with explosives went off in Syria’s capital city, Damascus, on Sunday.
