Iran slams terrorist attacks in Kuwait, Tunisia

TEHRAN, Jun. 27 (MNA) – Iran's Foreign Ministry has denounced Friday’s deadly attacks on a Shia mosque in Kuwait and a tourist complex in Tunisia.

On Friday, Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham strongly condemned the terrorist attack on a Shia mosque in the Kuwaiti capital, reiterating that “Takfiri terrorism is the most significant threat to regional countries.”

Afkham stressed that regional states must prioritize the serious fight against terrorism and its financial and ideological sources as their top security policies and called for collective regional measures to put an end to this heinous phenomenon as soon as possible.

At least 25 people were killed and over 200 others injured in the suicide bombing that was carried out during the weekly Friday prayers at Imam Sadiq Mosque in Kuwait City.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman further condemned the Friday raid in a hotel in Tunisian city of Sousse, saying such terrorist acts are aimed at tarnishing the image of Islam and destabilizing Islamic countries and the region.

She also called on the Muslim governments to take effective steps to counter terrorism targeting the unity of the Muslim world.

At least 37 people were killed in an attack by two unidentified gunmen in the Port El Kantaoui tourist complex, 10 kilometers north of the town of Sousse in Tunisia. An exchange of gunfire was reported between the attackers and security forces. One of the gunmen is said to be killed and the other remains at large.

The ISIL terrorist group has claimed responsibility for both attacks.
