Iran condemns terror attack on Saudi worshippers

Tehran, May 22, IRNA – Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Friday strongly condemned a terrorist bomb attack on worshippers in Saudi Arabia which left people martyred and wounded.

Those behind the terroist act should be identified and brought to justice, ministry’s Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said in reaction to the fatal suicide attack on Imam Ali (AS) Mosque in al-Qadeeh village located in Saudi Arabia’s eastern Qatif governorate.

‘Confronting all terrorist and extremist groups, non-adventurism abroad, and ceasing imposing of irreparable costs on the region’s nations are the necessary steps which should be prioritized,’ she added.

The attack on the minority Shite mosque in the Sunni-ruled Suadi Arabia left 17 martyred and 13 others wounded when some 150 worshippers were performing Friday Prayers.
