TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday condemned a terrorist blast in Sitra Island, south of the Bahraini capital, Manama.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham called for serious attention to the fight against terrorism and Takfiri extremism.
“The main challenge in the region is terrorism and extremism and it is necessary for all regional countries to put the confrontation with this source of threat top on their security agenda,” Afkham noted.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Bahraini Interior Ministry announced that two police officers have been killed and a number of others wounded in Sitra Island.
Bahraini media reported that the police officers were on board a vehicle, which was transporting 25 security forces.
Unknown gunmen purportedly opened fire on the vehicle moments after the blast, which left six people injured, according to the Interior Ministry.
