, , , , ,

SHAFAQNAIranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif condemned Chabahar terror attack, saying Iran will bring terrorists & their masters to justice.

Javad Zarif‏ reacts to the car bomb attack in the Iranian southern port city of Chabahar on his Twitter page, saying terror attack was carried out by “foreign-backed terrorists“.

“As we’ve made clear in the past, such crimes won’t go unpunished,” Zarif wrote in the tweet.

He also made a reference to a highly successful operation by Iranian intelligence services, which led to the capture of Abdolmalek Rigi in 2010, the ringleader of the so-called Jundullah terror group, noting “In 2010, our security services intercepted & captured extremists en route from UAE”.

Zarif underlined that Iran will bring terrorists & their masters to justice.

In a suicide incident on Thursday morning, terrorists attacked a police headquarters in Chabahar in Sistan-Balouchestan Province.

They exploded a vehicle, laden with explosives, on the entrance of the city’s police headquarters, martyring two Iranian citizens and injuring 42 others, IRNA reported.

According to press tv, the so-called Ansar al-Furqan terrorist group later claimed responsibility for the assault.

Sistan-and-Baluchestan — which borders Pakistan — has suffered several terror attacks targeting both civilians and security forces over the past years.

Iranian forces, from time to time, bust terrorist ringlets in the province, foiling their planned attacks and confiscating weapons and ammunition in the course of such security operations, press tv told.

Pakistan became the first country to condemn the terror attack, with its Foreign Ministry spokesman, Mohammad Faisal, calling for “concerted efforts” to uproot terrorism and prevent its spread.
