Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh on Monday condemned the terrorist attack that hit soldiers in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula two days earlier.
He said that foreign-backed terrorism has unfortunately spread in Muslim countries, stressing that regional nations should have close cooperation on fighting terrorism.
The Saturday attack took place in the town of Qantara. It targeted members of the Egyptian military, leaving at least eleven soldiers dead and five others wounded.
The Daesh terror group claimed responsibility for the attack.
