Afghan security personnel arrive at the site of the two blasts happened in the Afghanistan’s city of Bamiyan on November 24, 2020.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh condemned a deadly terrorist attack in Afghanistan’s city of Bamiyan.

The Iranian official expressed sympathy with the Afghan government and people after the attack killed more than 17 people on Tuesday, according to the Foreign Ministry’s official website.

Twin blasts in the central Afghan Province of Bamiyan killed at least 17 people and wounded more than 50, provincial officials said on Tuesday.

The explosives were hidden at the side of a road in a main bazaar in Bamiyan that killed 15 civilians, including children, two traffic policemen, and wounded over 50 people.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the deadly attack.

Violence continues in Afghanistan even as government negotiators and the Taliban have been meeting in Qatar to reach a peace deal. There has been little progress in those meetings since September.
