In a statement issued on Friday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman
Bahram Ghasemi strongly condemned the terrorist attack on Imam Zaman mosque in
Kabul, saying the terrorists have targeted the unity and solidarity among
Afghan people. He further extended condolences to the Afghan government, people
and families of the victims over the cowardly and inhumane attack.
"Fueling religious divisions and disrupting the unity of the
patient Afghan nation are undoubtedly among the objectives of the terrorists
who are on their last legs,” Ghasemi noted.
He went on to add, "it is imperative that the Afghan
government and people throw the terrorists and their supporters into despair as
always through solidarity and constant vigilance.”
A deadly suicide attack Friday on a Shia Muslim mosque in
the Afghan capital of Kabul left at least 20 people dead and 50 others wounded.
ISIL has claimed responsibility for the attack, at least a second of its kind
this month targetting Shia worshippers in Afghanistan.
