TEHRAN, May 25 (MNA) – Iran strongly condemned terrorist operations against civilian targets in coastal towns of Jabala and Tartus, Syira’s Latakia province.

​Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari strongly condemned Monday’s terrorist attacks on a bus station in the Syrian city of Tartus, and on a hospital in Jableh, killing more than 150 people and leaving dozens injured.

He expressed his sympathies to the victims' families, nation and the government of Syria over the deadly blasts against innocent people.

Jaberi Ansari noted that terrorism and extremism pose serious threats to the nations in region, and to the global peace and security. "The Islamic Republic of Iran calls for the international community to commit its legal and moral obligations and responsibilities in an all-out confrontation with this ominous, inhumane phenomenon," he underlined.

On Monday, three consecutive explosions went off near a bus station in the city of Jabla reportedly leaving several civilians dead and wounded, and the fourth blast rocked a local hospital.
