UN Chief, Security Council Condemn Beirut Bombing
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - The UN Security Council condemned the bombing that killed at least 4 people and wounded dozens Thursday in Beirut.
"The members of the Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable," the council said in a statement, DPA reported.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that Thursday‘s bombing, which followed a deadly blast on December 27, "further reflects a deeply worrying escalation in the violence witnessed in Lebanon in recent months."
He called on all Lebanese parties to act with restraint and emphasized the need "for the instigators and perpetrators of this crime to be brought to justice as soon as possible."
