Syria condemns terrorist attack in Southwest Iran

Damascus, Sept 22, IRNA – Syria strongly condemned the terrorist attack on a military parade in the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz, stressing that terror-adopters in the region will not be able to achieve their schemes through such crimes.

An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry told SANA Saturday that the Syrian Arab Republic vehemently condemns the terrorist attack that targeted a military parade in Iranian Ahvaz.

Four gunmen opened fire at people and officials who were watching the march of military units marking the beginning of the Sacred Defense (1990-98 Iraqi imposed war on Iran) on Saturday morning.

The latest death toll of the incident has been announced 25, while some 60 others were wounded.

Issuing a message in social networks, the self-proclaimed Al-Ahwaziyeh separatist group claimed responsibility for the attack.

Syria expresses its full sympathy and solidarity with the Islamic Republic of Iran, the source said, adding that such conspiracies are doomed to failure.

The source clarified that the Syrian leadership, government and people offer warmest condolences to the Iranian leadership, government and people as well as families of victims, wishing quick recovery for the injured.
