Iran concerned about terrorist attacks in Afghanistan – Politics News
In a statement on Thursday, Saeed Khatibzadeh expressed Tehran’s concern over “bitter incidents” in Afghanistan following reports of multiple explosions in various towns in the neighboring country.
Denouncing the indiscriminate terrorist attacks that targeted people in mosques during the holy month of Ramadan, the Iranian spokesperson described as heinous the terrorist actions against fasting Muslim worshipers.
Referring to media reports on the most recent explosion in the northern Afghan town of Mazar-i-Sharif which killed and injured dozens of innocent people, Khatibzadeh expressed sympathy for the victims of the attack and wished a speedy recovery to the injured.
The powerful blast that ripped through a Shia mosque in Mazar-i-Sharif on Thursday reportedly killed at least 10 worshipers and injured 40 others.
Earlier Thursday in the capital, Kabul, a homemade bomb exploded and injured two children.
Kabul police spokesman Khalid Zadran said in a tweet that the bomb exploded in the middle strip of a road in an area west of Kabul in a predominantly Shia neighborhood.
Two days earlier in the same area, multiple explosions targeting educational facilities killed at least six people, mostly children, and injured 17 others.
