TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Lebanese lawmaker blamed Takfiri groups and the Israeli Mossad agency for the recent suicide bombings at the Iranian embassy in Beirut which killed 23 people, including cultural attaché Ebrahim Ansari and five other embassy staff.

“The sides who had a hand in the Beirut blasts are Takfiri groups who consider murder and slaughter permissible and act under the flag of Al-Qaeda and one of its branches like the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and so on,” Lebanese MP Walid Sokrieh told FNA on Saturday.

Sokrieh reiterated that the Beirut blasts on Tuesday targeted all resistance forces in the region from Lebanon to Syria, Iraq and Iran, and said, “In my opinion the Mossad agency is among those parties that have been behind these two suicide explosions,”

The two bomb blasts killed 23 people and injured 146 others near the Iranian embassy compound in the Lebanese capital. The attack targeted just 10 meters away from the embassy in Beirut’s Southern neighborhood of Jinah, inflicting much damage to the compound.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian travelled to Beirut on Wednesday to pursue the embassy bombings.

Amir Abdollahian studied and pursued the ongoing situation and developments after the deadly bombings.
