Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday condemned a string of terrorist bombings in neighboring Iraq that killed around 100 civilians over the past days.
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi offered condolences to the Iraqi government and nation and families of victims of the deadly terrorist attacks.
He also attributed the killing of innocent people in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and other parts of the world to the international community’s muted response and the policy of turning a blind eye to the root causes of terrorism and violence.
The spokesman further reminded all regional and international players of the international duty to fight against terrorism seriously and genuinely.
Since early 2014, Iraq has been facing a growing militancy by the Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) terrorist group and its allied militants, who have taken over areas in the country’s west and north.
