Yemen Terrorist Attack Draws Iran’s Condemnation
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry condemned Friday terrorist attacks in the Yemeni capital that killed scores of worshippers at two mosques.
Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham on Friday condemned the suicide bombings in Sana’a as a terrorist act by the enemies of Yemen which she said seek to achieve their vicious objectives by creating instability and insecurity.
Yemen now needs calm and stability more than ever, she noted.
The spokeswoman also expressed the hope that all Yemeni people, groups as well as political and social parties would help restore stability to the Arab country through vigilance, partnership in the political processes and continuation of dialog.
On Friday, suicide bombers killed at least 142 people at two mosques in Sana’a. More than 350 others were also injured in the blasts targeting Badr and al-Hashoosh mosques.
A branch of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group in Yemen claimed responsibility for the bombings in an online statement, warning that the attacks were “just the tip of the iceberg.”
