Zahedan terror attack cowardly act: Lebanese scholars

Beirut, Feb 15, IRNA - Lebanese Muslim Scholars Gathering (LMSG) in a statement on Thursday condemned Wednesday’s terrorist attack in Zahedan which killed 27 and wounded 13 others, describing it as a cowardly move.

The statement reads in part that the US is seeking to deal painful blows on the Islamic Republic of Iran by provoking the Zionist regime and with the help of certain Arab states’ rulers.

“Such acts are committed by the Takfiri groups which are blindfolded by their religious ignorance to see the real enemy of the Islamic Ummah, the Zionist regime which has occupied the sacred land of Palestine,” it said.

Zahedan blast reveals US defeat in making Iran abandon its basic political approaches in defending the Islamic Ummah with the issue of Palestine on the top and leading the resistance movement, the Lebanese entity said.

“Iran will emerge victorious from the wide-scale war and will turn into a symbol of Jihad and resistance,” it said, noting that the country has proved that it is stronger than sanctions.
